Join the club! :) If your students or faculty have access to Adobe Pro, they could potentially do some of the work themselves. Here are my favorite cheat sheets. http://ncdae.org/resources/cheatsheets/

Subject: [Athen] Tag PDF files

Hi all. Does anyone have a quick "Cheat Sheet" on how to tag and make Publisher PDF/Word files accessible for users of screen readers and Text to Speech programs they are willing to share? My Director would like to make all alternate texts accessible before providing them to students. I see a need for students who are blind using JAWS, but is it necessary to make ALL PDF files from publishers accessible? Any words of advise or encouragement is welcome. In a typical semester, I have over 100 students and approximately 300-350 book requests sent to publishers. I am a 1-person Adaptive Technology Coordinator who may have 1-3 students assistants I can rely on.
