How to Reduce PDF Overload on Your Website

Government websites are littered with PDFs. They force users to download large files, print out forms, and pinch, zoom, and squint on mobile devices. The information in PDFs can be hard to find using search engines, and it's sometimes out of date. PDFs keep important information from your constituents, cause barriers, and create friction in the user experience.

But you’re still creating them. You have hundreds, maybe thousands, and the number goes up every day. Addressing this dilemma might seem overwhelming, but it’s not impossible. Find out the why and the how of paring back PDFs. 

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why government websites should avoid PDFs
  • How to improve your existing PDFs or transform them into accessible web content
  • How to change your processes to reduce the PDF cycle

These lessons apply to state governments and any large organization publishing lots of content.
