Adobe InDesign is a powerful tool to create both print and electronic documents with complex layouts. No matter which electronic format you plan to generate from InDesign, the same universal design features apply. Whether you’re creating a PDF, an EPUB, or an HTML file, the most critical features to include are headings and styles, reading order, and alt text for images.
A Note of Caution:
- PDFs exported from InDesign should always be double-checked for accessibility in Acrobat, as the conversion process can produce unanticipated results.
- Adobe’s online publishing tool is not accessible at this time. The PDF needs to be offered directly as a PDF in order for users to benefit from the document’s accessibility.
