Free Lynda.com Video: Creating Accessible PDFs
Accessibility is the key to making your documents to meet governmental standards and making your content available to the largest possible audience. But making your documents accessible takes some thought, planning, and effort. In his Lynda.com course, Creating Accessible PDFs in Acrobat DC., Chad Chelius shows the process of creating accessible documents using InDesign, Acrobat, Microsoft Word, and other tools.
Here’s the course description:
Accessibility means making sure your content is available to as many people as possible. When you make your PDFs accessible, it means adding tags, bookmarks, alt text, and other information that makes the files readable to users who are visually or mobility impaired. Using Acrobat DC, and other tools such as Microsoft Word and Adobe InDesign, it’s now much easier and faster to create valid, accessible PDF files. In this course, Chad Chelius explains why accessibility is important and what features an accessible PDF should include, and shows how to streamline the process of creating accessible PDFs using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, InDesign, and Acrobat DC.
