Distributing PowerPoint presentations is often best done as a PDF handout. After you
check your PowerPoint presentation for accessibility, you are ready to convert it into a PDF for distribution. Below you will find instructions
for one easy way of creating an accessible PDF from PowerPoint, "Save as Adobe PDF",
and also learn which way should be avoided.
How to Create Accessible PDF Handouts from PowerPoint
Open the presentation and navigate to the File tab. From there, select Save As Adobe PDF.
A window will pop up asking you to name the new PDF document. Select Options.
An Acrobat PDFMaker window will appear. Make sure the Enable Accessibility and Reflow with tagged Adobe PDF option is checked. Click OK.
After you have entered the name for your PDF, click Save.
*DO NOT* use Print As PDF to create your handouts. This will erase all accessibility elements of the presentation
and create a PDF that is not accessible.
