These are good points.


I also don’t know if a fillable PDF document can be created by Word.


Would be interested in the experiences of others.


That’s how we learn.

Word does let you export or save your Word document in PDF format, this is true with many types of programs.  I am not sure if you could create a fillable PDF document this way, I am guessing that what Word is producing is more of an image rather than a true PDF.  I know from personal experience that I receive a monthly publication that is exported from Word as a PDF and I can read most of it, but the TOC and any tables are butchered by a screen reader.  Also, the screen reader often skips paragraphs and I have to go backwards to reread the skipped paragraph.

But, for those of us who have Microsoft Word, can’t we create PDF’s with that?


I’ve never done this, but think it’s possible.

No, the free Adobe pdf reader. The paid version lets you create pdf's.

Is it the paid version?  I've found that the version I have is hit or miss with pdfs.

Oh, forgot to mention I always use Adobe reader DC for pdf forms.
