Quick Tip: Don’t Print to PDF

When creating a PDF file that will be used electronically, never print to PDF. This removes all the accessibility information from the file and leaves a screen reader user with a long stream of text (at best) or images with no text alternative. Many PDF programs have options to “Create” or “Save As” a tagged PDF which supports accessibility.
