Creating Accessible PDFs (Faculty/Staff/Students)

How to Create Accessible PDFs:
Faculty working on Macs must use RDP or go to a Windows computer in order to preserve links within Word documents when saving as a PDF. Otherwise, the links will not be live in the PDF file.
Augsburg printers provide the capability to scan a document and email it to yourself as an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) PDF file. The OCR means the file will be converted to text as opposed to an image. Find the scanners capable of OCR on https://iprint.augsburg.edu
Use Read Write Software
Download this software to convert image-based texted (scanned as picture) to actual text (readable and searchable). Learn more about how to install Read Write software. Please also refer to this guide on how to use Read Write software for Windows.
