How do I check the PDFs for accessibility?

This is quick guide on how to check your PDF in Adobe Acrobat to see if it’s accessible. If you don’t have Acrobat installed you’ll need to install it. It’s available to all UVU employees, you can find the link to Acrobat inside my.uvu.edu

  1. Open the PDF in Acrobat.
  2. Add the Accessibility tool. Go to the “Tools” tab, and then look for the purple accessibility icon, and select “Add”. This will add the Accessibility tool to the toolbar on the right side of the page:
