Learn how to create accessible PDF files with Acrobat DC, InDesign CC 2018, and Microsoft Word.
- [Chad] Hi there. I'm Chad Chelius and welcome to the 2018 edition of Creating Accessible PDFs. In this course, I'll show you how to take an existing PDF file and make it accessible along with using source Microsoft Office files and Adobe InDesign files, and exporting them to the accessible PDF format. We're going to start by taking an existing PDF file that contains no accessibility information whatsoever and remediating that file to make it compliant for users of assisted software.
Next, we'll dive into working with those source files, namely Word and Adobe InDesign, with a little bit of Excel and PowerPoint sprinkled in there. Throughout this course, I'll show you techniques, tips, and tricks on how to generate an accessible PDF file. I'll also show you a bunch of new features found in Acrobat, Word, and InDesign that have made the process of creating accessible PDF files much easier than in previous versions. I'm excited to have you with me, so let's go ahead and get started.
