About the Program
Targeted Audience: K-12 General Education and Special Education Teachers, Administrators and Therapists
Microsoft Word has several features that help document creators and editors to create
more accessible documents. More accessible Word documents create more accessible PDF
files as well. During this session, you will learn tools and techniques in Microsoft
Word to make sure that your documents are more accessible. At a minimum, we will discuss
and demonstrate how Word supports creating accessible document titles, properly structured
headings, properly structured lists, text equivalents for visual elements, more accessible
data tables, using color more carefully, and providing descriptive text for links.
Should we have time we will pass along more tips and tricks. You will leave the session
with more confidence that your Word documents are more accessible to people with disabilities.
