Ideally the PDF with the signature would be accessible, tagged, with good structure; and the signature would be an image with appropriate alt text. E.g. Peter Bossley's signature.

Unless you have extra staff or mechanical way to convert files, the simplest way for the central office is to post the Word (unsigned, with correct structure) and the PDF (signed and scanned) together. Least amount of work those folks have to learn/do = easiest way to convince them to do it.

Our central office has a habit of sending out signed memos generated in Word, signed, scanned as PDF, and emailed or posted. What is best practice for accessibility? Should they run make accessible on the scan to OCR and auto tag the PDF? Or have two PDF versions, one not signed but generated from Word with tags? Or is there a better option?
