Accessibility Features for Publisher
I am working in Publisher 2010 (Part of MS Office Professional Plus 2010) and I am looking for resources on creating accessible content. I noticed that there is no accessibility checker. Also, even when I used defined parts like "Headings" and then export to a PDF, those tags are not preserved. I was considering upgrading to the new publisher but I don't see any signs that that has those features either. I am very well versed in using the accessibility features and creating accessible content from Word and PPT, so I was expecting the same functionality in Publisher.
It seems like accessibility is "baked into" most other Office products, and I know the Microsoft is really stepping up their accessibility efforts, so I was just surprised to not see this.
Is there a way to add an extension or something like it to publisher?
Thanks for your feedback, we will be passing the feedback about the accessibility checker onto the engineering team. You can create heading styles by going to Home>Styles. Here is a resource with some steps on how to export as a PDF https://support.office.com/article/Create-accessible-PDFs-064625E0-56EA-4E16-AD71-3AA33BB4B7ED
