converting a Word file into an accessible PDF?

Apologies if this has been previously asked and answered here, but a
colleague asked me a question that I didn't have an answer for - if one
has a relatively uncomplicated Word file (with headings, perhaps a couple
of tables), what is the best process to follow to take this file and
convert it into an accessible PDF?

My gut is saying to move the file into PDF Pro and save it into a PDF
there, however, I am unfamiliar whether PDF Pro will automatically do any
necessary tagging of an existing Word file, or
if there is some work that needs to be done.

Any help or direction to resources would be appreciated.
