Thank you to everyone who answered my question. This is exactly the information I was looking for!

Cheryl, I’m not sure why the instructor wants to convert to PDF, but will ask.

Hope you are all having a great summer!

Best regards,

Why is the instructor converting their document to PDF when they already have an accessible Word document?

Hi everyone,

We have been contacted by an instructor who is trying to make her documents accessible. She uses a Mac, and when she creates a document in Word on the Mac and then saves it as a PDF, the headings do not carry over. I recall this being discussed in the past but can’t recall if there is a fix. Any ideas are most welcome.

I found an article that suggested opening the Word document in Google Docs, going through the documents and ensuring all headings were there, and then downloading the document as a PDF. I haven’t tried this to see if it works, but would like a less complicated method, if there is one.

Thanks all.
