Creating ADA Compliant Documents-Quick Dip-1 hour

This hands-on training covers how to create Microsoft documents that are accessible to people with disabilities. Topics will include finding and using accessible templates, using the Accessibility Checker to identify and fix potential accessibility issues, using built-in heading styles to ease navigation, adding alternative text to visuals, and creating accessible hyperlinks. We will primarily be using Microsoft Word for demonstration, but many of these techniques apply to other Microsoft products as well.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who wants or needs to learn how to create documents that are ADA compliant.

Topics covered include, but not limited to:

  • The Accessibility Checker

Microsoft provides a tool to help you identify accessibility problems with your document. We will use the checker to scan our document and identify potential issues.

  • Working with text styles

Learn how to properly format your headings by using styles. Styles have many advantages over visual formatting and can provide huge benefits for those looking to navigate a document using a screen reader.

  • Alternative text

Adding alternative text is a “must” to all visuals, including pictures, charts, and tables. Learn how to apply alternative text to all these items.

  • Accessible hyperlinks

When adding hyperlinks to a document, the clickable text you place in a document can be very important for those using screen readers. Learn tips to make your hyperlinks much easier to use.

Great intro class [Articulate Storyline Screen Recordings one-hour Quick Dip class]. Small class size was nice, able to interact, share screens and ask relevant off topic questions and get in-depth answers. Made the class more valuable and fun. Loved it!!
