Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessible PDFs, part of InDesign CC 2014: Interactive Documents.
In recent years, there's been a growing awareness…of the importance of making digital documents accessible for…people with disabilities, but what exactly does accessibility…mean, and how do you create it with InDesign?…You may have heard the term Section 508 mentioned in relation to accessibility.…In 1998, the US federal government enacted a law commonly known as Section 508…that required federal agencies to make their…electronic documents accessible to people with disabilities.…The basic idea is that everyone, including those…with disabilities, has a right to access information.…
And that electronic documents should be made in…such a way that everyone can use them.…Many states, academic institutions, and other…countries adopted similar laws and policies.…Now there's nothing in Section 508 that…mandates private companies make their documents accessible.…But it's becoming common practice anyway because of the additional…benefits, which include higher search engine rankings and easier…cross media publishing to formats like HTML, XML, and ePub.…
