Creating & Remediating Microsoft Word Documents for ADA Compliance: A Multi-Level Guide

Our “Accessibility” Subject Matter Expert Stacey Rayos is back and will deliver a multi-level, step-by-step webinar on how to make your Microsoft Word documents accessible for all users. Content creators, co-workers, educators, etc. are responsible for the Word Documents they create. Word Document accessibility is crucial for customers, co-workers, or students with disabilities. The good news is that editing Word Documents for accessibility is a relatively non-technical process and can make a big impact. In this live webinar, Stacey will review key topics such as:

  • Headings, fonts, color contrast, and appearance
  • Tables, charts, graphs
  • Image alt text and long descriptions
  • Using accessibility checkers
  • Exporting to other formats (HTML, PDF)
  • Q&A

This will be an interactive discussion about Microsoft Word and document sharing with accessibility in mind so that your documents are understandable, navigable, and readable for anyone who might want to enjoy or use your content.

Important Note: This is the third in a series of four quarterly webinars on ADA Compliance offered by FACC in 2020. The next and final webinar will be on PowerPoint Documents (November 19th).
