    Inclusivity and PDF with text

    Hi Wayne

    Great to see equality and reasonable adjustments emphasised in proposed POR changes (despite excess verbosity).

    In light of above, Vision 2018, DDA, plain best practice, etc., I think it would be appropriate for all HQ PDFs to have the underlying text in them.

    This will ensure the following:
    • They can be read by screen reading software used by the visually impaired;
    • They can be searched;
    • They are indexed by search engines;
    • Content can be copied & pasted.


    Examples where this isn't the case (the first one is particularly bad as all the text are just images):


    I'm sure that this is simply an oversight.

    Yours in Scouting
    Nico
