This course is intended for students who want to use the tools and features of Acrobat DC for setting security options and implementing accessibility features to conform to government and workplace standards.
Because this is a workshop, students are encouraged to bring in their working files (on USB if possible) if they want to work on these PDF projects specifically. Otherwise, the instructor will provide exercise files.
Adobe® Acrobat® DC is advanced software used to manipulate Portable Document Files (PDFs) now ubiquitously used for information exchange in modern offices. With the PDF format comes requirements to both retain security for documents (who gets to see and use the PDF) and to also make the documents accessible for people with limited visual capabilities.
