PDF Accessibility Guidelines

PDF stands for "Portable Document Format." Sharing digital content as a PDF is a for those who do not have access to Microsoft products to view documents. PDFs can be known to be more secure and less likely to be tampered with when shared digitally.  Creating accessible PDFs does require some level of knowledge of digital accessibility, tagging structure and editing in Adobe. By following the guidance on this page, creating an accessible PDF is achievable by everyone. 

*This section on creating accessible PDFs is continually being updated and worked on. Please use this section, and the BuckeyeLearn Courses listed below, to create wonderfully accessible PDFs.
