Although PDF accessibility is not "off topic" (PDF is a web format (much as webbies hate to admit it :-), this is not necessarily the best list for extended discussions on details of PDF accessibility or PDF applications.

Here are some related resources.

On LinkedIn...

"About PDF/UA" - a group operated by the PDF Association to educate specifically on the ISO standard for accessible PDF:


"Accessible PDF" - a more general group for questions and discussions related to PDF accessibility (not just attending to the ISO standard and supporting documentation)


For developers...

For members only, the PDF Association operates the "PDF/UA Competence Center", a technically-oriented group that includes 15+ web-meetings / year and runs an active discussion list. The PDF/UA Competence Center is the body responsible for publishing the Matterhorn Protocol and the PDF/UA Reference Suite.


I hope these resources are useful.

Full disclosure: I'm the Executive Director of the PDF Association. I am also the "manager" of both of the above-mentioned LinkedIn groups.
