AIIM’s PDF/UA Committee needs your help!
PDF/UA (Universal Accessibility) is tasked with developing a Standard for accessible PDF with a goal of eventual adoption by the ISO.
The Committee is made up of volunteers (don’t I know it!), and members may be of Observer or Voting status. Voting status requires participation.
The Committee’s Wiki is available to members of the Committee, but the meeting agendas and minutes are publicly available. What we need in particular is more involvement from both the PDF and the assistive-technology developer communities – the people who don’t mind plowing through the Reference.
If you are…
a) Are interested in electronic content accessibility, and (in particular) accessible PDF, and
b) Are versed in the PDF Reference, or
c) At least know what the PDF Reference is, and
d) Would be willing to take some time to read and discuss portions thereof
Then please join the PDF/UA Committee!
At this point, our process involves going through the PDF Reference, identifying areas of significance/concern, and then developing the Accessibility perspective on each of these, along with (suggested) revisions to the Reference. Come help us develop the standard for accessible PDF!
