If your electronic version is accessible, you "should" be able to generate an accessible PDF version from that. What format is your current accessible electronic version?

Good morning! We are currently required to create PDFs for many projects because they were promised to funders. We are trying our hardest to push people away from PDFs, but it will be years before we get to a place of zero PDFs.

We always create an accessible digital version, which is what we put front and center, but people still want the PDF available.

How do others handle the situation where you have an accessible digital version, but you still need to have a PDF version?
