Topic: Strategies for PDF Accessibility, Part 1

PDF documents are often selected as an electronic format as they provide an exact visual representation of the author’s content. However, if accessibility is not addressed during the authoring process or upon export, then the resulting PDF can prevent students, faculty, staff, or the public from engaging and interacting with the information.

There are multiple strategies for dealing with PDF documents to ensure accessibility is included in the final version. Such solutions can start with ensuring accessibility is part of the authoring process and then using accessibility checkers to review the document. For PDFs that are not accessible, following a step-by-step approach when using Adobe Acrobat or other tools can streamline the remediation process.

We will discuss various solutions for delivering accessible PDF documents, including authoring best practices, using Adobe Acrobat and Equidox for remediating documents, and training and outsourcing considerations. Bring your PDF questions and share the strategies you have developed for delivering accessible documents.
