"The requirement for public institutions and authorities to make printed and online information available as accessible documents is not only of great importance, but also prescribed by legal regulations. In our workshop 'Accessibility for design-heavy publications – with InDesign & MadeToTag', participants will learn how accessible PDF documents can be created directly from the layout in Adobe InDesign without a big time effort.“
Karina Zander, Manager Marketing & Sales at axaio software.

At the beginning of the workshop, the participants will learn what an accessible PDF is all about and what the requirements are for such documents.
