Hi Everyone!

I've created a page on the Karlen Communications site for information on the
survey. The survey closes January 15 and only completed surveys will be
tabulated. So far 145 people have taken the survey and 111 are complete!

Please share the link below with anyone you think would be interested in
sharing their experiences reading PDF documents using adaptive technology.
This is a chance to "have their say" and hopefully begin to influence


The survey will take about 20 minutes and I've allowed participants to leave
and come back to finish the survey. The survey is accessible and uses Survey
Monkey which apparently has invested in making at least the question types I
used accessible.

I'll be posting a report with the data once the survey closes. I'm hoping
this will be an annual survey so we can begin to track any progress and
barriers to accessing PDF documents. Am hoping this will give us some data
to advocate for PDF/UA implementation.at least some policy and procedures on
making PDF documents accessible and ensuring we have the tools to do so.

Cheers, Karen
