The internet will remain an important resource for many aspects of life: education, employment, government, health care, commerce, and more. As new and improved legislation is introduced, digital content accessibility guidelines are becoming clearer. Because PDF content is one of the most widely used digital formats to communicate information both online and via email, it is important to make sure that those PDF documents are truly accessible to everyone.

This session will give you a well-rounded understanding of PDF accessibility regulations, the risks associated with non-compliance (along with the benefits of making your PDFs accessible), and various options you can implement right away to improve the accessibility of your documents and reduce your legal risk!

Things you will learn:

  • An overview of the leading accessibility regulations including ADA, WCAG 2.0 AA, Section 508, and PDF U/A.

  • The risks and rewards of document accessibility within your organization.

  • Available tools and suggested workflows to help assess and address your current document compliance needs.

  • Other tips and strategies to consider when creating your document accessibility process.
