PDF is a handy format to share information, but PDFs can be a minefield for digital accessibility, particularly for users who rely on a screen reader. In this session we will discuss how screen readers navigate documents, reveal hidden organizational tags in Adobe, and share initial ways to check and remediate accessibility, and also how to secure more advanced support.

This workshop is part of the Digital Accessibility series for GW community members seeking the tools and understanding to make their teaching, research, and communication more inclusive and accessible to all audiences.
