Extend the accessibility support in generated PDF documents

Currently the generated accessible PDF documents contain tagged elements, but lack information about the logical structure of the PDF document. This prevents screen readers of correctly reading the PDF document contents. The tools like PAC (PDF Accessibility Checker) do not display correctly the document structure.

Hi Jacob,

I would like to thank you once again on bringing this issue to our attention. I'm happy to announce that R2 2023 will include significant improvements in PDF accessibility.

Here's how our example Dashboard report now looks like in PAC 2021 PDF/UA Checkpoint list:

And here's how its Screen Reader Preview looks like:

We hope that our implementation will now meet the standards for producing truly accessible PDF documents, passing validation of tools like Adobe Acrobat and PDF Accessibility Checker.
