Sacry Earns Certification in Accessible Document Prep
MOUNTAIN HOME, Arkansas - Byron Sacry, Senior Website and App Trainer for Brooks Jeffrey Marketing, Inc., has completed certification in development of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible forms and website content. Development of accessible website content is fundamental in addressing global accessibility standards and improving the digital experience for those with hearing, sight, or mobility impairments.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) have established global standards for website accessibility. These standards aim to improve the online experience for those with disabilities, ensuring equal access to information. Byron completed a four-part training program earning a certificate of completion regarding the creation of online content which addresses these accessibility standards.
Byron's training focused on principles and techniques for creating accessible Word, PowerPoint, and Adobe PDF files. Byron trained to evaluate, repair, and train others on common accessibility issues, as well as to create accessible documents.
In addition to the Web Document Accessibility Training, Byron also completed training courses from Adobe, Inc., the company which developed the Portable Document Format (PDF). The Adobe training courses included instruction on utilizing Adobe Acrobat Pro to create, tag, and validate accessible PDF documents for use online.
