Acrobat PDF files – Are Yours Accessible? Learn more…

Since we’ve set up some high-speed document scanners in the TLP Faculty lab and started using optical-character recognition (OCR) software, we’ve seen a huge increase in the quantity and quality of scanned, accessible Acrobat documents which are being uploaded to Blackboard Vista courses. But many faculty are still using PDF files which lack even the basic level of accessibility, simply because they were created long ago or gleaned from sources which aren’t aware of modern PDF document practices.
