Session Description:

A lot has changed in the last decade when it comes to accessible documents. While many give advice to avoid PDFs as an accessible format, this Q&A with international expert Adam Spencer will shed light on the advancements in technology and standards. Is the advice against PDFs outdated? While the reality was PDF content was inherently not designed to be accessible, has that changed and how so?
