PDF/UA Validation Node

The PDF/UA Validation node (User Accessibility) provides PDF/A preflight and compliance verification to ensure the document meets user accessible compliances defined by ISO 14289 PDF standards. Once verification is complete the results or report can be appended to the document. The document will be routed based on whether or not the verification passes or fails.

What is PDF Accessibility

PDF Accessibility (typically called PDF/UA which stands for “User Accessibility” or ADA stands for “Americans with Disabilities Act”)means the PDF document contains features that make it more accessible for people with disabilities, such as mobility impairments, blindness, and low vision.


PDF/UA is the informal name for ISO 14289, the International Standard for accessible PDF technology. A technical specification intended for developers implementing PDF writing and processing software, PDF/UA provides definitive terms and requirements for accessibility in PDF documents and applications. For those equipped with appropriate software, conformance with PDF/UA ensures accessibility for people with disabilities who use assistive technology such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, joysticks and other technologies to navigate and read electronic content.
