Making Speaker Notes Accessible as a Tagged PDF

Morning Everyone!

I just added a tagged PDF with options for making the Notes pages of PowerPoint as an accessible PDF.

The short version: DON'T use the Acrobat Ribbon or Acrobat tools and DON'T use the Kofax PowerPDF or Foxit Editor 11 conversion tools as this creates an inaccessible version of the Notes pages. DO use the Microsoft ability to save as tagged PDF and choose Notes Pages from the options.

I explain what the intentional barriers are for each method of conversion.

Please share!

Cheers, Karen
