InDesign authors often ask about generating accessible PDF files. To help respond to this, we worked with David Blatner of to combine our accessibility experience with his deep knowledge of InDesign so that we could produce a document that would be useful to InDesign authors interested in accessibility.
The document is located at but you might also be interested in the InDesign product accessibility page for additional information.
Please pass on any comments.

    The big problem with Indesign and accessible PDF in presence of complex layout structures (like a school book, or a manual)is reading order respect and image placement.
    Tag and structure in Indesign are not respected in PDF, alt disappears, etc.
    Not so simple.
