PDF Accessibility: Regulations, Risks, and Strategies
Thursday, November 16, 2017
2:00 P.M. to 3:30 P.M. EST
Webinar Series: Accessible Technology
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network
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.
Unfortunately, many questions abound regarding PDF accessibility, testing, and compliance. Where does one start to understand document accessibility? How do we address it?
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.
