Adobe Acrobat lets you create documents in Portable Document Format (PDF) from a variety of sources. Acrobat PDFs are easy to distribute, and remain faithful to the design and layout of the original.

Despite their convenience, PDF documents present a unique set of accessibility challenges, including a notable learning curve for managing complex documents. Key factors in PDF accessibility include:

  • Tagged elements
  • Document headings and semantics
  • ALT text for images
  • Header rows for data tables
  • Document title and initial view
