ACCESSIBLE PDF DOCUMENTS 2.1

Offered by the Disability Access Services of the Department of Rehabilitation

Class Description:

Content creators will learn to create accessible PDF documents. Analysts who create and manage existing PDF documents will learn how to fix common errors from the accessibility report. We will highlight the importance of using assistive technologies and human testing in accessibility checks.

All too often document authors rely solely on software tools to check for accessibility resulting in electronic content that has significant problems with both accessibility and usability for persons who utilize assistive technologies. This class is a mixture of lecture and hands-on training with a laptop.
