From project proposals, to instructional materials, to recruiting resources, PDF documents are plentiful across the ATE Community. It’s vital to ensure that the documents we produce are accessible to as many users as possible. This not only helps widen our reach, but can even improve the experience for users without disabilities. Make your PDF documents accessible by design with the Creating Accessible PDFs tip sheet from AccessATE and NCAM.
This tip sheet covers accessible PDF structure, navigating Adobe Acrobat, and more! To find additional resources that will help your team ensure accessibility, read the AccessATE blog post about the Creating Accessible PDFs tip sheet.
AccessATE supports the work of the NSF-funded Advanced Technological Education (ATE) projects and centers in making the materials and activities they develop more accessible for all students and faculty, including those with disabilities. The project aims to increase awareness and understanding of accessibility requirements and provide guidance, tools, and support that offers solutions and helps achieve compliance with accessibility standards.
