  • Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. – Speravir Mar 22 '14 at 2:49

    For this you can use the PDF Toolkit. However, it may only be restrictive when using Adobe to view the content. That is, other PDF viewers may not adhere to the restrictions, so this will not be fully secure. See Generate PDF that is not editable. – Werner Mar 22 '14 at 3:01

    There is no reliable method to do this as far as I know. Whether you use a password or not it is trivial to break. It is basically up to the editor to respect your restrictions. Why do you want to make your document inaccessible to users with disabilities anyway? – cfr Mar 22 '14 at 4:05
