One of the world’s major events on accessibility in IT, the ICCHP 2016 conference (15th International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs) takes place July 13-15 in Linz, Austria, on the campus of the Joahnnes Kepler University. Olaf Drümmer, CEO at axaio software GmbH, will be chairing a special session on PDF/UA and its impact on accessible PDF.
