Final Review - Step 4: Re-run Accessibility Checks


Perform Final Accessibility Checks

Now that you have reviewed your document for accessibility and corrected the accessibility issues you found using the built-in tools in Acrobat, the last step is to re-check for accessibility in your document.

  • Check for Tags
  • Check for Document Language
  • Assess Reading Order by use of the Order Panel, Export a Text (Accessible) version of the PDF, Use Assistive Technology such as JAWS and the built-in Read Out Loud features in Acrobat
  • Perform a Full Check for Accessibility by running the Accessibility Full Check Report

Refer to Stage 1 - Review: Checking a PDF for Accessibility section in this document to see how to perform each of the final accessibility checks listed above.

After you complete the reviewe, save the document.  If the final review of the document shows that it is accessible, you are ready to make the PDF available online.
