The joy of the web is that you can deliver all sorts of different ‘media’ via a single interface. Tim Berners-Lee designed it with exactly that in mind.

That is good news in terms of accessibility, because it means you can offer the same content in a choice of formats, PDF being one example.

The Adobe PDF reader has many accessibility features:

  • Text can now be read by a selection of screen readers.
  • There is support for high contrast viewing.
  • Structured markup can be added to PDF documents (just like HTML) – making it easier for those using screen readers to navigate.
