New lynda.com tutorial helps to make PDFs accessible

Accessibility is about making content available to as many people as possible. When it comes to digital content, accessibility usually refers to optimizing the files or media for use with assistive technology. However, this can often be more difficult than it sounds, especially when working with PDFs.

The good news is that lynda.com has recently released a video tutorial titled "Creating Accessible PDFs" that will help make the process easier. So check it out and remember to go through these steps before posting any PDF to the web!

To view the video tutorial, visit http://www.lynda.com/Acrobat-tutorials/Creating-Accessible-PDFs/147579-2.html?org=psu.edu.
