Hi there! Can you send me the PDF file as an attachment, and let me see what happens on my end. I’ve been working a lot on these myself, and would like to help you if I can.

Sounds like the PDF may be an image!
caption” an “image” and it’s referring to all of page one
Envision: To improve the quality of life and provide inspiration and opportunity for people who are blind or visually impaired through employment, outreach, rehabilitation, education and research.
I am having a lot of trouble making this fillable PDF accessible. (Both attached and at this link: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/article/661427 )
I’ve added tooltips to the form fields, tagged the text, and adjusted the reading
But when I run the accessibility checker, it does show *something *is off. it asks me to “caption” an “image” and it’s referring to all of page one!
I’m wondering if I tagged something incorrectly or the file size is somehow beyond the capacity of JAWs (which seems unlikely).
Do you have any ideas about what went wrong or how to make it right?
Also, we are hoping to find a company who can create accessible documents and forms so that we know they are accessible the first time, every time. Does anyone have any suggestions for companies that do good work?
We would especially love to use an organization that prioritizes the lived experience of people who need/use assistive technology and one located in or near Portland, Oregon. But we’re open to any suggestions.
