When a reader is using an accessibility tool like a screen reader, identifying the language the document is written in is crucial; it allows the tool to render and "read" the document more accurately, with the correct pronunciation.

Ideally, your document should be written in one consistent language; consider creating additional versions in different languages to meet the needs of other readers.Available on the following Venngage subscription plans: Premium, Business and Enterprise.

Set the document language

In Venngage's upgraded Editor, you can identify the language your document is written in, providing useful metadata for screen readers and PDF accessibility tools.

From the File Menu above the top toolbar

Open the Accessibility menu from "File", above the top toolbar in the Editor. Click Accessibility, then select "Set document language", as pictured below:

Click "Save" to set the document language.

From the Accessibility Checker panel

Check the Accessibility of your document to bring up the Accessibility Checker panel.

Open the Document Language heading in the Accessibility Checker. Review the information on the panel.

Edit the document language by clicking "Edit" next to where the document language is displayed. In the screenshot below, it is set to "English".
