Adobe is running a series of training in Australia the first week of March to help Australian Government employees understand how to create accessible PDF documents. The trainings are being held in Canberra at the National Museum of Australia, but will be recorded and made available online after the sessions (probably with a 1-2 week delay in order to have the recordings captioned and posted). We are running these sessions in conjunction with the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO).

I’m delivering two different presentations (twice each):

  • PDF Accessibility for Everyone – suitable for a wide range of user knowledge of accessibility, focusing on common authoring pathways
  • PDF Accessibility for Techo’s – an advanced session for people with good knowledge of accessibility

More information about the sessions, and registration for attendance, is now available.

I’m looking forward to these sessions and helping people understand how to create PDF documents that meet WCAG 2.0 and are easily used by people with disabilities.

      Thanks for the heads up. The HTML was correct but I typed it up in Word and WordPress didn’t interpret the smart quotes as quotes. Fixed now.

    I cannot attend but would like to view the recordings.

    I also would like to view the recordings since I cannot attend. Will this be provided?

      Yes, we will be providing the recordings after the sessions (probably 1-2 weeks).
