How to Make your PDF’s Accessible

Do you use PDF’s for board meeting notes, forms, downloadable documents and want to add them to your website? First you need to make them accessible so that people of all abilities can easily view them.

Please note, PDF’s are not always the best choice as they are hard to read on mobile devices as they are not responsive like a website is.

We recommend following the advice of Microsoft or Adobe on how to make your PDF accessible:

– Word: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/make-your-word-documents-accessible-to-people-with-disabilities-d9bf3683-87ac-47ea-b91a-78dcacb3c66d
– Adobe: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/create-verify-pdf-accessibility.html

From there, the best solution is to send them out to accessibil-it.com and have them remediate them before uploading your PDF’s to the website.
