PDF/UA
•Combines the three components of accessing PDF documents into a 
technical specification:
• The PDF document itself MUSTbe accessible to PDF/UA.
• The viewer/reader MUSTbe able to use the accessibility features in the PDF 
document.
• The adaptive technology MUSTbe able to use the reader’s output.
•Unless a person using adaptive technology has a conforming reader and 
conforming adaptive technology, then they do not have equal access to a 
PDF/UA conforming document.
•Can have a document identifier stating that the document is PDF/UA 
compliant which might help in identifying where barriers are.
• Need the same identifiers for the reader/viewer and adaptive technology.

What PDF/UA Means to Us
•A high-quality reading experience, equal to or exceeding that provided by 
any other format.
•There is a consistency of experience and expectation when a PDF/UA 
compliant  document is opened.
•Greater access to educational material, employment based material 
including employment forms, and any PDF document.
•PDF/UA conformance REQUIRESan identifier on the document stating the 
author’s claim that the document conforms to PDF/UA. As such, authors of 
documents claiming PDF/UA are fully and properly accountable.
•We need to understand the plain language results of the technical 
specifications and when asked “what do you mean by an accessible PDF” 
we must answer “PDF/UA compliance”.

Authors and Publishers
•The document author or publisher determines the format of publication.
•It can be EPUB, HTML and/or PDF.
• While regular (re-flowable) EPUB can be accessible, fixed-layout EPUB is NOT 
accessible.
•No matter which format content is published in, it must be accessible to 
international and/or country specific legislation.
•One format isn’t better for those of us with disabilities than another.
•We have to stop the skirmishes over “what is best for them” and focus on 
ensuring any format of content is accessible to international standards.
•As people with disabilities we have the right to choose which format that is 
available to us we want to access/read.

Choice!
•One of the premises of accessible document design and access to content 
is that “the end-user is able to choose how they view and interact with 
content.”
• This concept has been around since 2001 or earlier.
•Toward that goal, if someone accesses a PDF, ePub or HTML document, 
they should have the tools to convert that document to the format of their 
choice.
• Choice can be based on device, weather, built or open space environment, or the 
need to have content explained or presented in a different format to facilitate 
understanding.
•“Print” content now has choice: print, audiobook or e-text and Amazon has 
a link so you can start reading e-text and switch to an Audible book without 
losing your place (Whisper Read).
• There is no such thing as “this format is best for blind people.”
• Whatever format content is published in, MUSTbe accessible.
Alternate Text Production Centres
•How much time would be saved if 
•Students didn’t have to buy 2 copies of a text?
•Students could access digital text at the point of purchase?
•IF a student required alternate format, the PDF that arrived could easily be 
converted to the other format using File, Save As?
•Students could keep their digital books for reference and not have to 
return it at the end of a semester.
•We could empower students by giving them the tools to convert to a 
“preferred” format.
•We don’t have to create “differently accessible” content.
•If we do have to create “differently accessible” content, why create accessible 
content in the first place?
Blended Model of Remediation
•Not all PDF documents “have to be accessible by midnight.”
• There are services that facilitate an on-demand compliant remediation of PDF 
documents.
• There are services that do high volume remediation of PDF to compliance.
• There are tools to “do it yourself.”
•Need to take a look at how many PDF “have” to be PDF/UA compliant, 
what are staffing and financial resources and how to meet goals and 
compliance.
•Use staff and outsourcing in combination.
•Perhaps “front facing” PDF are sent out while PDF with “short shelf life” are 
done in-house.
• For example, reports are outsourced while flyers and restaurant menus are done in-
house.
Training
•PDF/UA ensures that everyone is on the same page.
•There is no guessing at what an accessible PDF document is or 
individual interpretation as to what Tags are to be used for what 
content.
•Those training remediation professionals and the remediation 
professionals themselves are all working from the same set of 
specifications and structure elements.
•Provide a consistent level of training and remediation based on ISO 
14289 or PDF/UA..
