Chapter 12. Toward More Accessible PDFs > Creating Accessible PDF Documents

Creating Accessible PDF Documents

You can satisfy the requirement for accessible documents—up to a point, at least—by using Acrobat 5 together with Microsoft Word 2000 to create “tagged PDF” files, which retain information about content, structure (chapters, sections, headings, tables, and so on), layout, and the order in which elements should be read aloud. (As explained in Chapters 7 and 9 and elsewhere, reading order is not always self-evident—for example, when text flows around an image, a text box, or a table.)

Installing Acrobat 5 adds a new Acrobat menu to Microsoft Office applications, including Word (Figure 12-1).
