Only if, or when, it is posted to the web -- as in "web-based 
information," which is a bit silly 'cause accessible design is equally a 
concern during the workflow process. Now, if the actual question is "what 
makes an accessible Office or Acrobat document," there's no shortage of 
relevant information online. A co-worker recently sent out these 
particularly topical references:

Microsoft Office: Word, PowerPoint, Excel | Webstandards, Accessibility 
and Usability at Penn State
