Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding outline levels, part of Creating Accessible PDFs (2014).
…Styles provide a way to consistently format the text in your Word document.…But to more accurately define the structure in a resulting…PDF document, we'll need to assign outline levels to those styles.…Now as a reminder, you can assign outline…levels using the Mac version of Word as well.…However the information will not get passed onto the PDF on the Mac platform.…You'll need to move this document over to a…Windows computer and generate the PDF file from there.…Now I'm beginning this video with the…outline Word document already open on my computer.…
And to show you what we currently have,…I'm going to generate a PDF from this document.…So what we're going to do is we're going to come up here to the Acrobat tab.…And I'm simply going to click on the Preferences button.…And we just want to make sure that Enable…Accessibility and Reflow with tagged Adobe PDF is checked.…That's very important so that we create a tagged PDF.…So we'll go ahead and click OK.…And then I'm simply going to click the Create PDF button.…
