More on Bookmarking and Accessible PDF Design

Someone on Google+ shared an article about bookmarking PDFs that detailed poor, adequate, and good examples of the practice. I found it interesting and appropriate to the topic of designing PDFs with accessibility in mind (read my previous post about that topic).

It’s important to point out, to publishers especially, that the very act of creating well-bookmarked PDFs puts you several steps in the right direction toward creating accessible PDFs, since many of the processes overlap. In some cases, you don’t have to go out of your way to support accessibility and screen readers, you just need to focus on doing what the average customer wants anyway.

You can read the original article here.

Finally, I wanted to share one last link. I came across this post the other day that offers up “Ten Tips for Creating Usable and Accessible PDFs.” It isn’t game-industry specific, but it’s important for PDF designers to read and take to heart. I’ll go into a bit more detail on it later.

Do you know of any other PDF design resources related to bookmarking or accessibility? Let us know in the comments!
