Creating accessible documents

Word, PDF and PowerPoint documents

When creating an accessible PDF document, start by creating an accessible document using Microsoft Word.  This will allow you to keep the accessible features you have built in your Word document when you export it to a PDF document.  Using the guides below, you can start by creating an accessible Word document and then export it to a PDF.  Not all web users have access to Microsoft Word, however, Adobe Reader is available to anyone at no cost.  All of the UW CMS templates include a link to Adobe Reader in the footer.
