After the Word document has been tagged with the proper Styles and formatting, it can be converted to an accessible PDF file. To do this:
Make sure Adobe Acrobat is installed.
- Click Start>Programs
- Look for Adobe Acrobat Pro
- If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Pro on your computer, arrange a time to use a Training Room computer.
Enable accessibility settings for PDF files/Convert from Word to PDF
Saving as a PDF converts the document, but you need to make sure accessibility settings are on before you convert:
- Click the Microsoft Office button >Save As >Adobe PDF > (let it save the document, if it asks)
- In the resulting window, click the More Options and then the Options button.
Make sure the Options dialog checkbox for PDF/A compliant is checked.
OK > then Save.
