Small Changes for Big Impact: Creating Accessible Word Documents

Presented on March 21, 2023, at 12pm ET


Jean Strohmier, Accessibility Engineer

Microsoft Word has features that help you create documents that are accessible to people with disabilities. By using these features, you can help readers receive your message clearly. If you don’t, your message might not get through to your readers—with or without disabilities. In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • Using Word’s built-in Accessibility Checker to help identify issues.
  • Common accessibility issues and how to prevent or address them.
  • Accessibility considerations that may benefit all users and not just users with disabilities.
  • Word documents intended for conversion to PDF and more.
