In the public and private sectors Microsoft Word is a leader in digital document creation software. However, creating accessible documents can be daunting, confusing, and even a liability if not done correctly. During this recorded webinar, participants will learn the steps for creating practical, accessible, and federally compliant Microsoft Word documents and will be given the tools to practice their newfound skills. Areas to be explored include the use of headings to create a meaningful document flow, hyperlink texts that are easy to understand out of context, and alt text on images for maximum accessibility. All participants will be given templates to follow along with and implement their own accessible features during the webinar. By the end of the session, participants will have the knowledge to make every document moving forward more accessible to end-users of diverse abilities.
