LAKEWOOD, OH – July 7, 2016 – Nearly 1 billion people worldwide live with some form of disability. Many organizations are making their web content accessible to this audience by conforming to WCAG 2.0 AA — the W3C’s standard for web accessibility.

But WCAG 2.0 AA requires organizations to make some difficult decisions, including whether to remediate PDFs or migrate the files to HTML.

David MacDonald, president of CanAdapt Solutions Inc., unveils five attributes to consider in the article PDF vs HTML: Which Is the Best Route to Reach WCAG 2.0. A veteran WCAG Working Group member, MacDonald addresses the differences between HTML and PDFs, including:

  • Mobility
  • Security
  • Time
  • Required Skill
  • Browser Behavior.

To find out which is the best route to create accessible content that conforms to the WCAG 2.0 AA standard, read the article PDF vs HTML now.
