Review - Step 2: Check Your PDF for Accessibility

Before making your PDF available to others, check for accessibility problems using Adobe Acrobat features.

These tutorials are divided into the 4 areas that are essential for reviewing your documents:

  1. Reviewing Tags
  2. Checking the Document Language
  3. Assessing the Reading Order  (Contains 4 Additional Sections)
