The effect of limb darkening in the UV spectra of accretion disks is evaluated using disk models. Limb darkening correction factors are derived for a grid of binary system parameters and orbital inclinations. Continuum radial emissivity distributions and a description of the local limb darkening effect are presented for a wide range of physical conditions. The behavior of the synthetic line profiles and their disk diagnostic capabilities are also discussed.
