"Creating Accessible Documents in MS Word" Training - Thursday, October 12, 2017 - LARC 100
How can you save time AND create accessible documents? Come learn to use the LIST model for access! Learn how to create documents that are accessible to screen readers and other assistive computer technologies by starting with MS Word and then creating accessible PDFs. This hands-on training will provide direct experience with following four simple steps to creating accessible documents. We will focus on Word, but the LIST model applies just as well to all authoring tools. Participants will be able to do the following:
1. Understand what it means to create accessible documents
2. Follow the "LIST" model with Microsoft Word to develop accessible documents
3. Utilize styles to create structure
4. Use the accessibility action wizard in Adobe Acrobat Pro to convert from MS Word documents to accessible PDFs
