    Hello Tilman,

    Currently, the kendo-react-pdf will create and PDF file based on the rendered DOM on the page. How accessible the PDF will be will depend mainly on how accessible the components that will be exported are. 

    This is the official guide for PDF accessibility. It is the official WCAG 2.0 documentation which explains the PDF work techniques.

    https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/pdf 

    If there are specific accessibility issues in the export PDF please let us know and we will be happy to address them.

    Please let me know if there is something more particular with which you need more help or if you need more assistance.

    Regards,

    Hello,

    thanks for a quick response.
    My specific problem is that I don't know how to add meta data to the PDF.
    For example, a PDF must have a global language tag set. 
    Images and links should each have an ALT tag set. An Alt-tag to the elements in the HTML code does not seem to be the correct meta-tag in the PDF.

    You don't have a manual or examples for this problems?

    With kind regards
    Stephan Giesen

    Hello, Stephan,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Currently, the PDF export has options to set some of the meta tags like the author, keywords, etc. All of them can be seen in the PDF export props:

    https://www.telerik.com/kendo-react-ui/components/pdfprocessing/api/PDFExportProps/ (search metadata)

    We can open a feature request for the required missing tag features if you point me to the specific part of the document for that feature it will help us to entire that the features are implemented to cover the official requirements.

    Regards,
