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

Converting Accessibility Practices from Office 2003 to 2007

Creating Accessible Documents In Ms 2007
