How do I make my credential accessible?


We’ve designed our PDF generator to use the same read-order and alt text as provided in your template files. Alt text for dynamic text (text inside form fields) are defined in the config.json file, see Design a PDF Template.

For in-depth details on how to create an accessible PDF see Adobe’s Guide.

Apple digital pass

Apple Pass does not currently support image alt text, so if you are adding text inside any images make sure those aren’t the only instance it gets displayed. If the hero image includes the credential name, perhaps also include it in the header and description field.

See Design an Apple digital pass template for field customisations.
