What are tags in InDesign?
A tagged PDF is a PDF document that contains tags, that add behind the scenes coding to a PDF.
Each tag identifies the type of content and stores some attributes related to it. In addition to that, tags also arrange the document into a hierarchical structure. This adds order to the content of the PDF (like headings, paragraphs, lists, footnotes, images and tables).
One big advantage of a tagged PDF is that it makes the document accessible to people with vision impairment. AT tools (like a screen reader) reads the information from the tags. Therefore, if a PDF isn’t tagged, there’s basically nothing to read.
Tagged PDF files have many other advantages. For example, the content of a tagged PDF reflows seamlessly on devices with smaller screens, like smartphones and tablets.
A tagged PDF helps keep track of where items are in a particular document. This simplifies the review of workflows in documents.
Tagging is one of those skills most InDesign users never learn. Now you will.
