Make sure that your tables output correctly from Excel and PowerPoint by watching this video.
- [Instructor] I wanted to just talk for a few minutes…about tables being exported to PDF out…of Excel and PowerPoint.…Now, Excel is pretty straightforward.…Again, not a lot of control provided,…however, the entire Excel spreadsheet gets exported…as a table, so let's just take a look at how that would look…if we wanted to make sure…that this was an accessible PDF file.…I'm going to go to the Acrobat tab and I'll choose Create PDF.…I'm just going to call this Excel Tables, that's fine.…
When the PDF file opens,…you're going to notice that in the Tags pane,…we, of course, do have this table.…The issue is going to be that our header row is missing.…We could fix that a couple of different ways,…but I am going to run the Acrobat Accessibility Checker…just so we can see what the issues are.…Remember, the title is there,…but it's just not being displayed.…We can right-click on that and choose Fix.…That's easy enough to do.…Now, the table, the problem is, of course,…that the headers are failing.…
An easy way that we could fix this is…
- What is accessibility?
- The screen reader experience
- Setting up Acrobat DC
- PDF remediation workflow
- Tagging content, including lists and tables
- Adding metadata, bookmarks, and alt text
- Generating a PDF with Microsoft Word and Adobe InDesign
