Just exported my resume as PDF in desktop Figma on Mac. All text seem to be regular selectable text. Also hypertext links open as expected.
I’m very interested in hearing how PDFs from Sketch work and how it’s different from an accessibility point of view. I’m no PDF expert, so I can’t really tell the difference between my PDF and a great accessibility approved PDF.
It may appear text is selectable/accessibile… however when you look closer/click edit you’ll see it’s one big image - all vector and can’t be made accessible. I wrote to Figma about this, they explained to post about it in the forms and continue to look at their release notes if it’s updated. I’m surprised it’s not solved yet.
Figma does not currently support exporting editable text. You will not be able to edit any text in a PDF exported from Figma. You can still select and copy text when viewing the PDF in the browser, or other compatible software."
