Read below to see how you can learn to make your PDFs accessible for all!
If you are using Adobe Acrobat to convert documents from Word or InDesign to PDFs, then you should be aware of tools in Acrobat to make your document accessible. Join Clemson Online’s Accessibility Coordinator Michelle Tuten as she introduces you to the basics of Adobe Acrobat accessibility as part of the 2022 National Disability Employment Awareness Month events. This session is ideal for faculty and staff who create PDFs for others to use. This session will focus on the conversion process, settings, and tools you can use to make accessible PDFs. There will be time for Q&A so bring your accessibility questions!
If you cannot attend, take some time to review this Canvas site resource on PDF accessibility.
Lastly, if you would like a 30-minute, one-on-one session with Michelle on accessibility, please book a consultation slot here; it’s free!
