Exporting a PPT to a PDF from a PC

To get the fewest accessibility check errors, use the “File, Save as Adobe PDF” option.  Not the “File > Save As > Changing the ‘Save As’ type to PDF from the dropdown” option or the “Print > Print as PDF” option.

The speaker notes will not be read out loud automatically in Adobe, rather they appear as comment bubbles.

Make sure to put the Alt-Text in the description field and not the title field, as the title field is not read out loud.
