Re: examples of good practice with pdfs?

Go to my web site: http://www.karlencommunications.com I only publish in
accessible PDF and have been doing so for years....and provide training. All
of my for purchase books are also in tagged PDF. The tagged PDF are on most
pages including the company profile on the first page and instructional
documents on the Microsoft Office pages, discussion papers on the AODA page
and so forth.

I do use a screen reader and have optimized my PDF for accessibility.

Cheers, Karen

Subject: [WebAIM] examples of good practice with pdfs?

I am involved with the ACTOER Project (Accessibility Challenges and
Techniques for Open Educational Resources
http://actoer.referata.com/wiki/Main_Page) whose aim is to investigate and
improve accessibility support in Open Educational Resources. We are really
keen on singposting people to examples of good practice and case studies
which offer real-life examples of accessible resources. Could anyone on the
list direct me to projects and/or individual resources which focus on pdf
accessibility? I am not looking for guides to creating accessible pdfs, what
I am after (and have had real trouble finding) are examples of real-life
teaching resources in pdf format which could be used to tell people "this is
what an accessible pdf" looks like. Equally, examples of bad practice would
be useful as well. Many thanks if anyone can help - I am getting somewhat
frustrated with not being able to get anything useful after hours of
searching on the net.
