Word to pdf conversion

This video shows how to convert a correctly structured MS Word file into an equally accessible PDF.  From Word's Save As dialog, we choose PDF as the file type.  Under Options we make sure that headings will be converted to PDF bookmarks.  Crucially, we also make sure that Tags for Accessibility is checked.  Having produced the PDF, we demonstrate how to use bookmarks.  The video concludes with a brief look at the Tags Tree, which provides the all-important structure for screen reader access.
