Facts and opinions about PDF accessibility

Joe Clark, author of "Building Accessible Websites" wrote an article that deals with PDF accessibility.

The article explores the use, or better too much use, of PDF documents and poses the question if all the material present on the web in PDF today should really be in PDF format. It's interesting to discover that publishing a document in this format - universally considered to be excellent for cross-platform viewing and completely accessible - can be a violation of the Disability Discrimination Act in Australia for example. Yes, I'm not talking gibberish, according to the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission if you have only a PDF version of a document you are discriminating people.

Clark provides a plethora of information covering PDF readers, best practices, authoring tools, and more. If you're using the PDF format this article is a must-read, I can guarantee you there are many things to learn.
