Use Adobe® Acrobat® XI to help meet accessibility standards by creating files that make it easier for people with disabilities — such as blindness, low vision, or mobility impairments — to interact with your PDF documents and forms.
“Actions make it easy to follow the check list of requirements for creating and saving a document. Acrobat XI makes it easy for anyone to leverage its rich, comprehensive features without having to be an expert or go through intensive training.”
— Bill Lunsford, database administrator and graphics manager, BBDO Atlanta
The Make Accessible Action will guide you through each step in creating and verifying an accessible PDF. It will help you tag content as a heading, paragraph, or image and add descriptions of images and charts. So people with blindness or low vision can navigate your document more easily.
Run an accessibility check to help ensure that your PDF conforms to the latest Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and PDF/UA standards. Get a report of any problems and fix them right away.
Set headings up to six levels deep with the enhanced Touch Up Reading Order tool to help viewers read your content in the correct order when they’re using screen readers.
Now you can tag page elements and set alternative text for images more easily, so screen readers can announce image-based content in a tagged PDF.
