I thought some on this might list would find this interesting. I wonder how many states have done something similar.

Notice to All Oregon Attorneys:

Effective February 10, 2014, all hearing notices sent from an Oregon circuit court which uses the Odyssey system will link the recipient to a Portable Document Format (PDF) file instead of a Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) image

This change is being implemented to facilitate use of screen-reading software by people who have a visual impairment. TIFF images are not compatible with that software.

The Odyssey system is currently being used by circuit courts in Benton, Clatsop, Columbia, Crook, Jackson, Jefferson, Linn, Polk, Tillamook, and Yamhill Counties. The Odyssey system will go live in Multnomah County on May 12, 2014, and in Douglas, Josephine, and Marion Counties on December 8, 2014. All Oregon circuit courts will be using the Odyssey system by June 2016.

Any problems with the new process should be reported to the OJD Help Desk, at 503-986-5582 or ETSDhelp at ojd.state.or.us<mailto:ETSDhelp at ojd.state.or.us>.
