Make Your Course PDFs Accessible

Digital Accessibility

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. We will also discuss 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. GW is committed to making all digital content, including websites, social media, documents, etc. accessible and usable for everyone.
