Introduction to Accessible PDFs

taught by: Teenya Franklin


Making PDF documents and forms accessible can be a daunting task when you don’t know what tools are available and which is the best one to use for each specific issue.

In this session, participants will be introduced to the various tools available in Acrobat Pro DC. We will walk through the workflow to take a document, convert it to a PDF, and remediate some of the basic tagging issues.

This class is for novices in PDF accessibility and will cover elements such as:

  • Why it is important to have an accessible source document
  • The various tools in Acrobat Pro DC and how to remediate basic issues in an inaccessible PDF
  • How to convert a scanned document to an accessible PDF

The goal for this training is to give participants the basic skills necessary to create an accessible PDF. It is a hands-on, lab style course so come prepared to do some work. There will be little to no lecture, just demos and practice.
