The Basics of Remediating an Inaccessible PDF

This webinar is now available on-demand.

Deque is proud to partner with Adobe on this PDF webinar, this is part 1 of a 2 part webinar series.

Making a PDF document accessible for people with disabilities can be a daunting task if you're completely new to the topic. In this webinar, we will walk through the workflow of converting a Word Document and fixing some basic tagging issues using Acrobat Pro DC.

This webinar is designed for those who are new to PDF accessibility remediation or those who want a refresher. It will cover such subjects as: 

  • Changing existing tags
  • Creating new tags
  • Working with simple lists and tables
  • Tagging content as an artifact.

There will be little to no lecture, just demos walking through the various steps of remediation.

The goal for this webinar is to give participants the basic skills necessary to create an accessible PDF.
