Why make documents accessible?

People with disabilities should be given equal access to information. Badly-coded websites create barriers and exclude these users from engaging with your organization.

Every part of your website, include documents, videos, PDFs, and rich media should be made accessible. Depending on your location and your industry sector, you may also be subject to certain legislation.

Document accessibility can be tricky. There’s a lot to consider when making PDFs accessible to users of assistive technology.

There’s a general lack of knowledge in organizations when it comes to creating and editing PDFs for accessibility, including:

  • What the requirements are
  • How to find the problems
  • How to fix them
  • How to create new accessible PDFs
