Creating Accessible Digital Documents will help participants to become more intentional about creating (and modifying) Word documents so that they are easily read by those with vision impairments (including use of assistive technology). While the class focuses on the use of MS Word, the concepts can be carried over into other MS Office products like Excel, PPT, and Outlook. Class material provides the step-by-step “how-to” approach for all Office products. You will learn how to check your documents using screen-reading technology. Detailed information can be found on the Creating Accessible Digital Documents course information sheet.
