PDF and PowerPoint Accessibility Training
August 28, 2019
Event website

PDF is one of the most common document formats at UCLA. People who are blind, low-vision or have dyslexia rely on assistive technologies and screenreading software to “read text out loud” to them. However, many PDF documents created are completely inaccessible or frustrating for screenreader users. Public PDFs posted on websites, PDF course reading material and PDFs emailed to listservs should be accessible. At this training, you will have the opportunity to get hands-on training in making an accessible PDF.

Please bring a laptop with Adobe Acrobat installed. If you do not have a laptop one will be provided for you at the Learning Lab.
