Yes, it is very possible to make accessible documents using Adobe
Acrobat XI. I will say that in my opinion the best and easiest way to
make accessible documents is to make them accessible in the original
file format first. If you make an accessible Word document, and then
Save As PDF you will save yourself a lot of time.

We have some resources for creating Accessible Documents on our website

I hope this helps.

Subject: [WebAIM] Probably OT: Acrobat XI accessibility

Hi all,

Is Acrobat XI Pro accessible enough that I could use it with a
screenreader to make PDF documents accessible?

If it's do-able, would someone be able to point me to some documentation
or a tutorial describing how it's done.

Thanks - and apologies if this is off topic but I'm not sure who/where
else to ask.

Thanks as always, Lynn
