Thanks Jules for the reference. This will help us review the process in
Word documents. We also have clients using WordPerfect 8.0 and up
creating PDF's. Is there a better way to create this in 6.0 to make
accessible documents in WordPerfect? Anyone...

Much appreciated.

At http://jrickards.ca/downloads/accessible_pdfs.zip, I have created a
tutorial (in Word within the zip file) on my methods, tips, tricks and
techniques on how I create an Accessible PDF. We use Acrobat 5 at work
so
where there may be differences between Acrobat 5 & 6: if so, my
document
does not account for them.

Acrobat 6, in addition to other features, includes new image
compression
routines that were not available to Acrobat/Acrobat Reader 5. This last
step
probably is asking you if you wish to accomodate Acrobat Reader 5 users
by
using compression routines that may be read by Acrobat/Acrobat Reader
5. I
don't think it is an accessibility issue per se.

HTH,

Jules
