Check Accessibility: Word

Word includes an accessibility tool that identifies accessibility issues.

Do you plan on creating a PDF file from a Word document? It is best to first resolve any accessibility issues in Word. Another accessibility check will be needed after saving as PDF, even if it already passed the accessibility check as a Word document.
