Once your document follows the Word document accessibility guidelines, it is important that exporting to a PDF format is done correctly in order to retain
the accessibility elements.
Below is one of the ways to create PDF documents from an accessible Word document.
You will also see the one way you should avoid, "Print as PDF".
To Save as a PDF, click on File.
Then select Save as Adobe PDF.
From here you will enter the name of your PDF and click Save.
Printing as a PDF turns your document into an image, rather than retaining the accessibility
tags and information created in Word.
