    Default Language, properties and 508 compliance

    For a PDF to pass the accessibility check, do you need to set up the language for the content?

    But, I thought that setting it up at the Properties level would do the work! Please, correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!

    you can also add the language by hand if it is not in the list. But that does not mean that the "508 compliant" works out well.

    I confirm that best practices is to set the right language even at a tag level. I wonder if there's a way to do it automatically. I had a tagged document and chose to open each and every single tag to choose the language from the pull-down...quite a boring task to do!

    I have tried selecting all together but it does not work. It's one by one ...
