Barrier-Free Access to Digital Information - Who should care?

    Accessible PDF files are fundamental for barrier-free access to digital information
    from eGovernments/public administrations and enterprises serving the public sector.

    Legal requirements for accessibility to digital information for all in the society
    (see the EU Web Accessibility Directive, the Swedish Law on Access to Digital Public Service,
    the Swedish Discrimination Law, ...., the German BGG, BITV and EU mandate 376)
    impose that the public sector offers all digital content
    - webpages as well as PDF documents - in an accessible form.

    But also media service providers, advertising/communication agencies, banks,
    insurances agencies, representatives of associations and institutions as well as
    students and lecturers at colleges and universities increasingly consider it
    their duty to have their written materials available as accessible documents.
