PDF Accessibility: Manuals, Checklists und Sample Documents

The world of PDF accessibility is unfortunately still not that easy to grasp. At the beginning you have to understand what an accessible PDF even is and what regulatory requirements and standards exist. Then you have to decide what softwares you want to use. And after deciding for a software (or more like a package of multiple softwares) you have to keep all the different accessibility requirements in mind while creating the document.

With the posts on this website we tried to make this complex subject as simple as possible for you. And to additionally facilitate the practical implementation, we have put together a package of documents for you. These documents will help you make your work process more efficient and they will make sure that you don’t overlook any of the PDF accessibility requirements.
