I am using Microsoft Office to create content...
- Always turn on the Microsoft Accessibility Checker
- Take 15-20 minutes to watch the Microsoft Accessibility Tutorials for the tool you are using - the videos cover the basic essentials for improving your content
- Use the proper steps to convert your files to accessible PDFs
- Keep the original file updated, accessible and on hand in case a learner is having issues navigating the PDF. The original file is usually the most accessible version.
I have images...
- Keep it simple, avoid using decorative and unnecessary images
- Keep images inline with text
- Review the WebAIM Accessible Images
- Also review the WebAIM Alternative Text
Both resources will provide you with information on how to write alternative text. The DIAGRAM Center offers more extensive information and practice on simple and complex images.
I still have questions!
