Overview

Making documents accessible is an easy-to-learn skill that will make sure everyone can use and read the materials you're creating. 

Below are tools and resources for creating accessible versions of all of the materials you use everyday including frequently asked questions about correct formatting. This information is adapted from Jess Thompson's Accessibility 101 course on Canvas. Many topics and tools that aren't covered here are covered in the course materials and in the Additional Resources section below.

Note: The instructions below show the general steps to take to make documents accessible. The steps may look a little different depending on what operating system you are using and how old it is. The most recent version of Office for Mac and Windows should have all of these accessible formatting options available. If you need additional help making materials accessible, contact us
