Ross Moore talked about tagged pdf at TUG 2010: http://river-valley.tv/tex-mathml-for-tagged-pdf-the-next-frontier-in-mathematical-typesetting/ He mentioned that he uses an "extension" of pdfTeX, but I don't know the details. There would certainly need to be a lot of work done to transform the structure of a LaTeX document into a form that a re-flowable ...

ConTeXt now supports PDF/X out of the box. You need the latest version of ConTeXt for this to work (that is, the version from TL 2010 does not have this support). This only works with MkIV (that is, luaTeX) and not pdfTeX and XeTeX. Basically, all you need to do is \setupinteraction [title={...}, subtitle={...}, author={...}, ...

This is not just a question of 'use the right package', as you also have to watch what you do with your input. For LaTeX, take a look at pdfx. For plain TeX, you probably need to look over the LaTeX stuff, code your own bits and away you go! I'm not sure about ConTeXt: undoubtedly it can include the same data that LaTeX can, as ultimately the engine is the ...

Producing PDF/A-1b compliant documents with LaTeX is a difficult business. There seems to be a bug in pdflatex and pdfx is not working properly. Anyway. You need to embed a) metadata and b) a color profile. Embedding metadata with with hyperxmp Let’s take your example and add metadata with hyperxmp. % =============================== % Filename: ...

From pdfx manual: 2.1. Data file for XMP metadata As mentioned above, standards compliant PDF documents need XMP metadata to be included. In order to create XMP in the prescribed XML format, a simple data file holding the meta information of the document needs to be created either through a program or by hand. For our purposes, we name it as ...

Generating PDFA-1b compatible PDFs is rather difficult with LaTeX. The details are described here: http://support.river-valley.com/wiki/index.php?title=Generating_PDF/A_compliant_PDFs_from_pdftex If it is just about the color profile, you may use the following piece of code: \pdfminorversion=4 \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage[rgb]{xcolor} ...

to go a bit further, if you perform a full check of a latex document with Acrobat Pro, it looks like there is no way you can avoid messages like: "None of the images on this page that need alternate text have it." "All of the text on this page lacks a language specification." "Text that does not map to Unicode reliably may be read incorrectly by assistive ...

I had to validate a document through jhove, and I managed to do it using pdftk on the PDF that was produced by pdflatex. I simply used the command pdftk MyDocument.pdf output ValidatedDocument.pdf I hope it can help you!

Generating PDFA-1b compliant documents is not possible with the default pdftex. There is a minor bug in pdftex resulting in non-compliant EOL markers. There is a bug report from 2011 about this problem which successfully resolves the issue. You can find it here: http://sarovar.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=4341&group_id=106&atid=493 ...

Putting the correctly compiled executables to /usr/bin, everything works as expected. As I struggled quite a bit correctly compiling it, I think it will be useful to have an up-to-date guide to get pdftex from current sources. A big thank you to the helpful people at the tex live and tlbuild mailing lists. Here's the guide: How to build and install ...

I cannot provide an LaTeX-based answer, but I tried the new Acrobat Reader XI in order to get a fully valid pdf/a-1b document from your MWE. Et voilà, it worked well, the pdfwidth information for rendered glyphs was also fixed. One drawback though, in comparison with Acrobat Reader 9 the generated files seem to get larger.

I'm not sure if an answer is still of interest. Anyway: 1) I would strongly advise to use the pdfx package: \usepackage[a-1b]{pdfx} 2) The error in the pdfx package is caused by the way how the timestamp is put together. Depending on your timezone (e.g. UTC+1, UTC-1, etc) you have a different sign there. This causes the issue. Use of \getTZh doesn't ...

There is the [pdfx][1] package which provides assistance to create PDF/X-1a and PFD/A-1b compliant pdf documents: The package can be loaded with the command: \usepackage[<option>]{pdfx} where the options are: x-1a generates PDF/X-1a compliant PDF. a-1b generates PDF/A-1b compliant PDF. In addition to your tex file, you will need a ...

Did you try using pdflatex instead of latex-dvips-ps2pdf? I am actually in a similar situation as I'm also writing my thesis, and I found it is simpler to just generate a pdf directly. I understand this might disrupt quite a few packages but I've been through that with 25+ packages in my preamble quite successfully. I'm using TeXLive 2012.

Your provided example works fine for me. Therefore, I have to assume there is some confusion about the XMP Metadata and/or the process on how to typeset the document. First of all, XMP metadata is not the PDF metadata, e.g. XMP data can be viewed by using Adobe Acrobat: File, Properties, Additional Metadata; whereas the normal metadata already shows up ...

Based on the provided patch I was able to reproduce correct PDFA-1b PDFs some time ago using TeXLive. I do not see why MiKTeX should be any different. Your approach does not address the specific issue related to how pdf streams are terminated. With the default pdftex, they are terminated using 0x0A, they should be however terminated using 0x0D 0x0A ...
