Basics of Tagged PDF Part 2: Content and Order Panels

In September 2020, we did a webinar that introduced you to the types of Tags in PDF documents and what they are used for. We didn’t have time to cover the Order or Content Panels and when to use them and equally mportant, what to use them for.

This webinar builds on the content of that webinar and guides you through some basic remediation techniques. This is still considered an introduction to tagged PDF.

When: Jan 21, 2021 1:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Website Accessibility Compliance – Myths and Solutions

There are two myths that may be negatively affecting traffic to your website and keeping you from achieving accessibility compliance.

The first myth is that if you use HTML 5, your website is automatically accessible to people with disabilities. Not true.

The second myth is that if you use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or EPUB, that these formats are accessible by default. Not true. Along with this myth is that just because a PDF is tagged, it is accessible.

How do you find out what parts of your website are not WCAG compliant?

This webinar brings together the Carroll Center and Open Access Technologies to give you tools, services and solutions to find out what is and what isn’t accessible on your website.

Join us for this free webinar to explore how the Carroll Center’s Accessibility Services team and Open Access Technologies’ DocMD product enables us to work together to provide a holistic solution to meet all of your website accessibility needs.

Speakers will be Bruce Howell (Accessibility Services Manager at The Carroll Center) and Karen McCall (Senior Advisor, Accessible Document Design atOpen Access Technologies).
