How to create accessible Word docs

View this accessibility article by Zayira Jordan on the Inside Iowa State website. Inaccessibility can sneak into websites, email and other digital content in unexpected ways. Uploaded Word documents, for example. Many Word docs posted to the internet don't meet accessibility standards. Often, the problem is improperly structured documents that prevent voice-to-text screen readers from making sense of the documents. Poor structure also can hinder easy access for those with learning disabilities as well as general audiences.

Windows 10 Update

April 7, 2016

Beginning April 1st all new computers will come installed with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.  They will also be installed with Office 2016 (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.)  We will NOT be sending out software DVD’s with Windows 10 to the county and campus offices like we have done in the past.  This is due to new laptops not having DVD drives installed.  We are still finalizing how we are going to distribute the software for use on existing computers.  We are leaning towards USB drives or pushing it out over the network.
