Derek Featherstone has spent his life leaping over barriers—and helping others do the same.
“I was born with a club foot,” says the accessibility expert, “but I never let it get in my way. I’ve been in sports all my life and try never to make excuses.”
Though his left leg has always been weaker, and occasionally in casts, he teaches fitness classes and played competitive rugby for many years.
Oh, yeah—and he completed the Ironman Triathlon (a 2.4-mile swim and 112-mile bike ride followed by a marathon run) three times.

In a May 2010 report, the U.S. Census Bureau disclosed that there are 1.8 million people age 15 and older who can’t see printed words, and 1 million who are unable to hear a conversation.
With discussions about Section 508 compliance heating up and questions about accessibility trickling down, we have an unprecedented need to use today’s technology tools to create truly accessible content. Perhaps you need to know how to create accessible documents or movies for your students, or maybe you do business with an entity that requires accessibility compliance.
We’re planning a course to help you create accessible PDF documents using Adobe Acrobat. We’d like to hear what topics interest you most as you approach accessibility with your PDF documents. Please rate the importance of each topic on our 1-5 scale, with 1 being most important and 5 being least important.
Please share your thoughts with us in the comments section. Your feedback will help us shape this upcoming course. Thank you!
