Good morning all,
In online campus environments, creating accessible information, whether for teaching or just providing basic information
on an institution’s web site, is becoming a pressing issue for students with disabilities, especially those with visual impairments.
Re. below, is a recent reference to Adobe System’s Guide for Document Authors’ and other related resources for
creating accessible online material.
As you make plans for this coming fall’s online resource supports, please keep this in mind when creating your own documents,
or when providing suggestions to faculty or instructors for their own online resources.
PS: Re. the list-serve source, UID stands for: ‘Universal Instructional Design.’

Subject: [UID-FORUM] New Access Adobe Web Site with Adobe 6.0 Accessibility Documents
Adobe Systems has a new access.adobe.com web site and it includes the two documents I worked on for them.
Creating Accessible Adobe PDF Files: A Guide for Document Authors:
<http://www.adobe.com/enterprise/accessibility/pdfs/acro6_pg_ue.pdf> and Reading PDF Documents with Adobe Reader 6.0: A Guide for People with Disabilities
<http://www.adobe.com/enterprise/accessibility/pdfs/acro6_cg_ue.pdf> They also have a general Create Accessible Content page:
http://www.adobe.com/enterprise/accessibility/creating.html and of course the main accessibility site is http://access.adobe.com <http://access.adobe.com/>
