I am using the accessibility.sty package with the tagged option and I am getting an error when I try to center my section headings. http://www.babs.gmxhome.de/download/da_pdftex/accessibility.sty

As a basic example, I have a class file, testcls.cls

\NeedsTeXFormat{LaTeX2e}
\ProvidesClass{testcls}[2018/08/02 Test Class]

\LoadClass[letterpaper]{article}

\newcommand*{\makeStatement}{
  \begin{minipage}[b]{\textwidth}%
    \section*{
       \centering Statement
    }
    Some text.
  \end{minipage}}

And a document

\documentclass[12pt]{testcls}

\usepackage[tagged]{accessibility}

\begin{document}
\makeStatement
\end{document}

Initially when I did this in my original document my error was about \equal{Document}{Section} which I narrowed to \closeUntilPDFStruct and feel it is probably something to do with not protecting something. Unfortuneatly, I am not experienced to this extent and do not know how to proceed.

When I simplified my example, I got an error about \let\reserved@e\relax, and I cannot figure out where this is coming from either.

  • You are aware that you won't get a valid pdf if paragraphs go over a page break as the package can't handle this? – Ulrike Fischer Aug 22 '18 at 21:09
  • @UlrikeFischer Does that apply here? There are only three words in the document. Am I missing something? – AThomack Aug 23 '18 at 17:41
  • No that's not the source of your problem. But if you want to tag a real document it doesn't make much sense to spent much time to debug a package that won't work anyway. – Ulrike Fischer Aug 23 '18 at 17:42
  • @UlrikeFischer thank you for the suggestion. What about what I have here makes you think I might have this problem? Section will not be more than one line. Is it the minipage? Is there a line of code that people typically include to prevent this? – AThomack Aug 23 '18 at 17:46
  • I would suggest that you look at the tagpdf package. I really don't want to spent time on an old, unmaintained package that will never work correctly and patches a lot of internal commands. – Ulrike Fischer Aug 23 '18 at 17:50
