[Athen] Accessible PDFs without Acrobat

Hi Doug,

My concern is actually our faculty (teachers), because many of them are using personal machines and don't have access to campus for the time being. I'm looking at every alternative I can think of (such as not using PDFs, ways to create PDFs without Acrobat).

My institution provided me with a laptop to work from home which has both Microsoft Office and also Acrobat Pro to let me work on remediation of documents. Are your remote staff having to use their own computers?

Hello All,

With our faculty working from home, I've run into an issue where some faculty don't have access to Acrobat Pro to create accessible PDFs. Does anyone have a good alternative to Acrobat or just generally using PDFs? Any suggestions would be really helpful.

Thank you,
