PDF (And Microsoft Word) Document Accessibility
When creating a PDF, which is frequently done in Microsoft Word it is best to create the Word Document as accessible as possible. The guide below will help you do that. Some Items still will need to be checked and fixed in Adobe Acrobat, but if you start with an accessible word document you are more likl;ey to have an accessible PDF, and will have much less to do in Acrobat.
Please note: This guide does not include making a PDF form.
