As part of the University of Alabama’s Technology Accessibility Initiative, the Center for Instructional Technology’s Technology Accessibility team administers grants to professionally remediate UA-distributed PDFs when internal remediation is not available.

Grants may be used to professionally remediate PDFs that will be 1) shared publicly on behalf of the University of Alabama or one of its programs or 2) shared campus-wide or with an entire area (program, college, department).

Grants are less likely to be approved if the materials can be remediated through existing UA tools and resources.

The following criteria can be used to prioritize remediation efforts and use of grant funds:

  • Are the materials public-facing or campus-wide?
  • Are the materials able to be remediated internally without extensive specialized knowledge?
  • Are the materials frequently accessed?
