12:15 pm - Basics of Creating Accessible PDFs in InDesign
Presented by Eric Forest RGD
Eric has been interested in design and making since childhood. Today he works as a graphic designer, and expands his practice into woodworking and electronics whenever possible. He has created multi-sensory exhibits for art installations, accessible tool prototypes, and published literature on creating accessible wood working shops for visually impaired learning. His view is that access to design tools, and the knowledge to use them, is an under-appreciated component of building the diverse design teams that will carry us into the future.
