Course Description: In this hands-on, two-day Adobe Acrobat Pro Section 508 Accessibility Advanced training course, learners will take their PDF accessibility skills to the next level by mastering assistive tools and intelligent workflows powered by AI. Through interactive lessons with smart helpers that explain standards, check orders, merge contents and autotag documents, participants will efficiently repair issues, structure tables, sculpt content panes using artifacting, OCR scanned files, appropriately tag forms, and handle complex materials from Word and InDesign. By the end, students will have the advanced techniques needed to confidently address accessibility in forms, reports, scans and more while leveraging automation to validate and fix tagged PDFs. Whether publishing documents online or printing by request, this workshop provides the latest methodologies to make PDFs accessible with help from artificial intelligence.
