Ensuring that course materials are accessible is an integral part of Universal Design. DSS has created multiple videos to show the step-by-step process of how to create a basic accessible PDF. These videos will walk you through what not to do, how to use the necessary tools in Adobe Acrobat DC, and more nuanced processes such as creating form fields and alternate tags/descriptions for images.

If you are still in need of assistance, you can contact cua-altformats@cua.edu with further questions. All videos are sorted by the order in which they should be done in the process of making accessible PDFs.
