Accessible PDF Training


As websites become more accessible, there is increasing focus on the documents they link to. This is particularly important where a document is the end point of a user journey or must be read along the way.

PDFs are one of the most common document formats on the web, and in this hands-on course you will learn how to create accessible PDFs from scratch and how to convert existing PDFs to be accessible.

Duration: 5 hours (10:00 till 16:00 with 1-hour lunch break).

Who Should Attend? Anyone involved in the PDF creation and design process, such as graphic designers, content authors, web developers, web site managers, creative directors and marketing managers.

Course Size: Up to 8 people.

Cost: 345 plus VAT per person for public training sessions in central London. Please call for dates.

Private training sessions are also available at your own premises. Please call for pricing.
