Specifying the document title ensures there is a programmatic method to identify the document and may help provide metadata to searches performed by users of assistive technology. A document subject and author provide an additional description of the document. The document keywords field allows metadata to be provided about the document, which makes it easier to find.
There are several document properties that must be set to ensure the document is accessible. In addition, interactive features such as links and bookmarks can be added at this step. Properties to set include:
- Document title
- Document subject
- Document author
- Document keywords
Select “File” from Top of Your Screen
