Answer / Solution:

The following levels of PDF/A compliance can be selected when Kofax PDF/A is selected as the output format for PDF Generator in Kofax Capture 10.2:

  • PDF/A-1a: (default setting): Supports long-term storage of digital documents and fully satisfies the requirements in the ISO 19005-1 specification. Readable by any PDF reader that conforms to PDF 1.4, or later.
  • PDF/A-1b: Offers the same level of compliance as PDF/A-1a and satisfies the minimal requirements in the ISO 19005-1 specification.
  • PDF/A-2a: Offers the same level of compliance as PDF/A-1a, and adds support for JPEG 2000 compression to generate reduced file sizes. Satisfies the requirements in the ISO 19005-2 specification. Readable by any PDF reader that conforms to PDF 1.7.
  • PDF/A-2u: Offers the same level of compliance as PDF/A-2a, and adds the ability to extract text in Unicode.
  • PDF/A-3a: Permits the embedding of another PDF/A file or a binary file format (such as XML or Microsoft Office) within the PDF/A file. Satisfies the requirements in the ISO 19005-3 specification. Otherwise, the same as PDF/A-2a.

Note: With PDF/A-3a compliance, only the PDF/A file, rather than any embedded file, should be considered for archiving purposes.
