PDF Conference features session on accessibility and Section 508

It is very refreshing to see a big tech conference list accessibility as one of the featured presentations.

In a press release announcing the
2008 Adobe Acrobat and PDF Conference,
one of the listed sessions is titled “Accessible PDF: Tagging and Section 508.”

This is the sixth annual conference for the group, which claims to be the largest gathering of PDF professionals. It is April 30 – May 1 in Orlando, Florida.

Michael Eisner, the former CEO of the Walt Disney Company, is set as the opening speaker. Given that, I would say that this has to be a major tech conference. After all, when you’ve got a featured speaker like that, this ain’t no Mickey Mouse conference.
