Hi Rachel,

If you are dealing with converting documents like lots of tables to PDF tags automatically, this can be done using the macro recording application. There are several competitive utilities out there on the Internet. One example is the JitBit Macro Recorder - https://www.jitbit.com/macro-recorder/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.jitbit.com_macro-2Drecorder_&d=BQMFaQ&c=8hUWFZcy2Z-Za5rBPlktOQ&r=yLNhwiX8iZacT6vVxox7Z_NGnpPZIttYTawwWKe49W8&m=afu-iS0f2e-5qFWDLFa6qlKPjHc_RctgME330Pmq3PM&s=hNKR249u8rYDwMcZjkCUdeWXvnr36SgKeRtzr_NSe_A&e=>. I personally never used it, but a colleague of mine used it in his work. He had to check to make sure it was tagged correctly after it was done. It really saves time and allows you to work on other tasks.

This application is also perfect for those with limited mobility (can't use the mouse or keyboard). All you have to do is to assign your mouse and keyboard macros to hotkeys and let them run the course.

Hi, all.

We are about to start a process of converting Word to PDF and posting online hundreds of policy documents. Our institution plans to make sure they are accessible and our IT group has been tasked with automating this conversion process as much as possible. What tools do you know of that can help with this?

Any suggestions from your experience?

Thanks for any ideas,
