PDFs and accessibility
Gian Wild looks into PDF use in 2014 and the experiences of both the general public and people with disabilities.
Gian will also talk about how to deal with the legacy PDF problem.
She will explain how sometimes the best solution is not to make all your PDFs accessible, especially when resources are limited, and more importantly, how to meet accessibility requirements with thousands of untagged PDFs on your site.
