PDF Webinars to offer Section 508 clinic

July 15, 2005


PDF Webinars has announced that it will be running a Section 508 clinic on August 9 and 11, 2005 at 2 p.m. US EDT. The two-part clinic targets U.S. Federal Government agencies who need to produce Section 508-compiant PDFs and private sector companies and contractors who work with U.S. Federal agencies. Attendees will learn how to best use new tools in Acrobat 7 to make legacy PDFs accessible, and will cover strategies for making accessible forms from scratch. Another point of focus will be on how to go about preparing good source documents that convert to accessible PDFs quickly and easily.

"What we see over and over again in our training is that creating accessible PDF is an 'upstream' issue," says Carl Young, Adobe Certified Instructor and producer of the PDF Conference, who will deliver the training. "The key is to design and set up your source documents properly. If you do that, creating an accessible PDF is much simpler."

The clinic will also cover other major issues that those working with Section 508 face, such as working with legacy scanned documents that need to meet Section 508 standards and creating accessible PDF forms.

"Perhaps the most bothersome problem, however, is working with PDFs created by others, where you don't have control over the source document or how the PDF was created," say Young. "So we'll address how you fix existing PDFs by editing tags and how to check a PDF for accessibility and fix known problems."

The cost of the clinic is $129 for a single course, with a special government rate of $99. PDF Webinars provides live, online training, and is a service of Carl Young Training Associates.
