A steadily increasing number of PDF documents is published on the internet. Unfortunately, PDFs, without having especially prepared, aren't accessible and people with disabilities are unable to read som or all information within these PDF files.
The creation of fully accessible PDF documents is complicated and time consuming. The «Access for all» fundation offers some services to make creating accessible PDFs easier.
The foundation «Access for all» (Zugang für alle) provides creation of accessible PDF documents as an additional service.
Accessible PDFs must meet the following requirements:
- Accessible output for screen readers (for blind people)
- Text magnification with text reflow (for visually impaired people)
- Device-independent display (mobile devices)
- Text structure meeting the requirements for handling assistive technologies (casual search engine optimization)
