OCR provides accessibility for people using various screen navigation systems and screen reading programs. We encourage all materials at Stout be accessible by processing all documents (syllabi, assignments, readings, postings, etc.) prior to posting them on the electronic course delivery system (D2L, Learn @ UW-Stout, et. al).
How to OCR documents:
- Use only “clean” originals to scan
- Open the document in Adobe Acrobat Pro
- Select "Edit PDF"
- Each page should automatically be converted to recognizable text
- Click Save As PDF
- Please post this OCR version of the PDF in your online content
