The keys to unlocking barriers to learning

Accessible Excel Documents


  • Follow all recommendations for general Word documents such as using alt tags for images, including table header information, and using meaningful link text.
  • Avoid using blank rows, cells, or columns for formatting as these can lead a user of a screen reader to think there is nothing more in the table.
  • Give all sheet tabs unique names that describe briefly what is on the sheet.  To do this, right click the sheet tab and then click “rename.”
