Accessibility Enhancement: Export the Style Heading Levels to the tag structure in Adobe PDF
Currently, Telerik Report Designer cannot export the style heading level to the tag structure in the generated PDF. It exports the headings, yes, but only as a paragraph tag. This request would require that a Heading Level (e.g., Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 ) field be added to the Properties panel such that a text box could be tagged as H1, H2, H3, etc.  According to accessibility guidelines, PDF/UA-1, WCAG 2.1 and 508, the tag tree needs to contain a logical reading order and tag structure. Heading Levels are essential to that. There may be only one H1 - usually reserved for the document title, then major sections get H2, subsections, H3, etc. Can this be done?

Hello James,

Thank you for the feedback!

It is an absolutely valid request and it can indeed be done in a similar way as the AccessibilityDescription.

We plan to introduce this through an AccessibilityRole property on report items that will allow setting the role for each item in the report.
