How to make PDF files readable on any platform?

Question:I created a PDF file from a word file on my windows computer. When I E-mailed that PDF to my teachers, they were unable to read it. I assume it's because they are on a Mac OS, but I wanted to check. So, does it matter what platform the PDF is created in? Is there any solution on VeryPDF?
