Brandy's Experience

Attended Accessible Documents and PDFs

My responsibilities include circulating Faculty Senate proposals to the faculty and maintaining the website archives. Many of the documents I handle are PDFs and it’s important that everyone be able to read and evaluate them. I attended the Designing Accessible PDFs workshop and it was very valuable. I learned about some very simple tools that can address the majority of accessibility issues. The Access Team also spent some time on more complicated issues, like tables, and worked with me on my specific needs. I now consider the Access Team a regular resource and often reach out for quick troubleshooting. I do not understand everything about accessibility, but I do understand why it’s important and I now know that I can always count on their office to help me find solutions too.
