Accessible Word Documents
Using the built in tools in Microsoft Word will create documents that are tagged appropriately for screen readers to interpret the elements of your document. Use those tools to create headings (rather than bold and/or underline), build lists, and create tables. Also ensure that all images have alt text that describes them. To learn more about how to do this choose one of the following options:
- Watch this short video on document accessibility
- Try one of these Cheat Sheets from the National Center on Disability and Access to Education (NCDAE) that give instructions specific to Mac or Windows for different versions of Word.
Also check the IT training schedule for Word training to learn more about using Word effectively.
