Re: your favorite Accessible Word and PDF how to articles

I am a person who uses a screen reader and only publish in accessible format. My books are published in tagged compliant PDF so they are accessible. I do not publish in Braille and unfortunately do not have any Braille based resources for working with digital devices.

There are some free tutorials on the Karlen Communications website, but they too are in tagged PDF. However some of the sample documents are in Word. http://www.karlencommunications.com/OfficeForWindowsAccessibility.html

Cheers, Karen

Dear Sir or Madam, I am very interested in your books as well as your lessons however I want to know whether you print or provide braille books. On the other hand I want to know whether you have got computer Braille books for the blind. Actually I am a blind person and find it difficult to read and write PDF-files on a computer, therefore in which way can you help me?

> I'm trying to put together a list of resource links for document creators in our office. Last week I watched an excellent Accessible PDF tutorial on Lynda.com. However, not everyone in our office has access to Lynda.com. I'm trying to find something similar in nature. Either a free online course, picture-heavy tutorial articles, etc. Do you have a favorite resource you like to refer people to for creating accessible MS Word documents and PDFs?
