In this video, learn about the two common workflow approaches as well as the pros and cons of each.
- [Instructor] I'd like to talk for a few minutes about…what a general workflow for PDF remediation looks like.…I've created this flowchart to show you…the two general options, and the pros and cons of each.…This course covers both of these options…so you'll get a better handle on this as we move along.…And hopefully, at a certain point…while watching these videos,…the light bulb is going to turn on in your head,…and you'll say, I get this,…and understand what this workflow chart is saying.…Now, if you take a look at this chart,…up at the top, we start with a source document.…
Basically, you have two choices.…Either you have a source document, or you don't.…So, let's start off here by going to the left.…If we have the source document,…we're going to basically add the properties…to that source file.…Now, that source file is going to be a Word document,…an InDesign file, it could be a PowerPoint presentation,…and there's only certain number of source files…that allow you to add accessibility properties to it…that will carry on into an exported PDF.…
