Hi All,

I was doing more reading about PDFs and accessibility and saw this-I don't 
agree with his answer...but I thought I would put it out there for discussion.

How to make PDF's compliant with Section 508

Are there any Web tutorials or books I can read to learn how to make PDFs 
compliant with Section 508?--Jane Edwards

First, if you don't produce forms for federal government, it is wasted 
time, but there is information available. Adobe has the accessibility 
section on its Web site (http://access.adobe.com) with useful 
documentation. There are other Web sites about accessibility in general on 
all the federal government sites, and finally, there are further links from 
there. Also, if you are providing forms for a federal government agency, 
you should get in touch with their "Section 508 representative," who will 
give you guidelines for that agency's way to implement it. I also found 
some interesting references on the Federal Computer Week site 
(http://www.fcw.com).--Max Wyss
