Have we passed ‘peak PDF’?

Participating in the PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit

The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit’s objective is to establish a broad-based understanding of how PDF files should be tagged for accessibilty. It’s an opportunity to focus on establishing a common set of examples of accessible PDF content, and identify best-practice when tagging difficult cases.

Members supporting PDF features!

The typical adoption curve for PDF technologies until approximately 2007 tended to track with that of the original PDF developer. Since then the marketplace has shifted; it’s no longer clear that Adobe drivesPDF feature support worldwide. Accordingly, we are happy to report that adoption of PDF 2.0 continues apace, with new vendors announcing their support every month.

Sightseeing

Die Schloßstraße

Schloßstraße is the shopping centre in the borough of Steglitz.

Between Walter-Schreiber Platz and Rathaus Steglitz is a separate, vibrant centre full of restaurants, shops, theatres and cinemas. Here the Das Schloss, Forum Steglitz und Schloss-Straßen Center shopping centres are complemented by the KARSTADT department store, Naturkaufhaus Galleria and Schloßstraße 110. The Globetrotter store, located directly at Schloßstraße U-Bahn station offers outdoor fans, active travellers and amateur sports enthusiasts everything imaginable for outdoor sporting activities. In April 2012, the renovated Steglitz shopping centre “Boulevard Berlin” reopened its doors to the public. With its 76,000 square metres (820,000 sq. ft) shopping space, it’s the second biggest shopping centre in Berlin. Altogether, Schloßstraße offers a total of 200,000 (over 2 million sq. ft) square metres of shopping fun!

Hackesche Höfe

Berlin courtyard at Hackescher Markt.

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Hackesche Höfe have developed into the central contact point for both Berliners and people visiting Berlin. Lavishly restored, these courtyards are located in the historic “Scheunenviertel” or “barn district” in the Spandau suburb of Berlin-Mitte.

Brandenburg Gate

A symbol of unity.

While the only remaining city gate of Berlin formerly used to represent the separation of the city between East and West Berlin, since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 the Brandenburg Gate has now come to symbolize German unity. In addition, this gate made of sandstone is one of the finest examples of German classicism.

Alexanderplatz

Germany`s largest square!

Alexanderplatz is one of the most famous squares in Berlin and certainly the largest. Named after the Russian Czar Alexander I, who visited the capital of  Prussia in 1805, “Alex” became a traffic hub when a train station was established there in 1882. The construction of the Central Market Hall (1886) and Tietz department store between 1904 to 1911 transformed Alexanderplatz into one of the main shopping areas of Berlin.  It was even made famous in 1929 by Alfred Doblin’s classic novel “Berlin Alexanderplatz.”

Kurfürstendamm

From the bridle path to the boulevard.

“Kudamm” is the most popular place for going on a stroll in Berlin. The 3,5 km long boulevard goes all the way from Breitscheidplatz in Charlottenburg, where the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is located, to the Rathenauplatz in Grunewald, where the villa district of the western part of Berlin begins.
