Hyperlinked Images in Accessible PDFs - Formatting Techniques
From Mary Mailler
If your PDF document contains hyperlinked images, those hyperlinks need to be properly formatted in your document's tag tree in order for a screen reading device to be able to locate and access them appropriately. In this video, the process for checking that your PDF's hyperlinked images are properly tagged and making any necessary adjustments to their formatting in accordance with the ADA's accessibility guidelines is reviewed. If your PDF contains numerous images, it may be more time efficient for you to contact Student Disability Services for purposes of requesting assistance with this process. In the Attachments tab of this file, there is a step-by-step instructional text and image based document provided to you as a guide for addressing the issues of hyperlinked text and PDFs. For accessibility issues requiring immediate assistance, or to schedule either a one-on-one or group training session regarding accessible document design, please phone our offices at 806-743-1864 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
