Illustrator must make accessible PDFs
Please add accessibility tools/features to Illustrator so that:
It will export to an accessible PDF/UA-1 compliant PDF with live machine-readable text, tags, Alt-text on individual graphic elements, File Info metadata, and reading order.
All of these accessibility features will be retained when an AI file is imported into InDesign for a larger sized document. Must retain the live machine-readable text, tags, Alt-text on individual elements, and reading order. (At this time, AI files become static graphics when imported into InDesign and they lose their live text and all capability of being fully PDF/UA-1 compliant.)
This is extremely critical for info graphics, maps, posters, technical drawings, and similar complex graphics.
Thanks for reporting the issue. But please log this issue in the Illustrator forum and not Acrobat.
This will be fixed by them.
