The latest version of Office for Mac available on our campus has an accessibility checker in the Review ribbon. Not sure if it has been improved recently, but it has existed for at least a few months.

Here is the Microsoft link with more information.
It looks like it is in an Insider version but am not sure when this was written. I thought it had been released but then I'm on the Insider Fast track.

I've heard from a very reliable source that you can now run the Office accessibility checker (as per the Windows version) for Word and PowerPoint and create accessible PDFs from Word and PPT for the MAC.
I'll need to change some online content if this is the case and since I don't work much in the Mac environment I just wanted to verify that this is the case.
