Monday, July 13, 2009

The PDF file format is no longer inaccessible to people with disabilities. If PDF files are developed with accessibility in mind, people with disabilities can use their assistive technology to access needed information from PDF files. This presentation will be an overview on the variety of methods and tools to ensure that the PDF files are accessible. Simple instructions will be shared along with advanced techniques, tools, and tips that can be used in the process of creating accessible PDF files.
