Building on the information shared in Accessibility Toolkit: Making Presentations Accessible, this presentation will walk you through the creation of accessible documents and PDFs. We will cover the seven key elements to consider to ensure your document is accessible: headings, typography, link text and alternative text, images, tables, language, as well as accessibility evaluation tools.

When you export an accessible document to PDF, most accessibility tags and features will carry over. In this introductory-level session to using Adobe Acrobat for creating accessible PDFs, we will discuss the basics: running the accessibility checker, finding and editing tags, determining reading order, and handling images. Note: You will need access to Adobe Acrobat Pro (not Adobe Reader) for the functions that we will review.
