Ensure that everyone can access, use, and benefit from your Microsoft Office documents by implementing these accessibility best practices from David Rivers.
- [Voiceover] Hi and welcome to Creating Accessible Office Documents. I'm David Rivers. Accessibility is all about making something usable by everyone, including those with disabilities. When it comes to creating accessible documents in Microsoft Office, it can be challenging because it may not be possible to find out specifics about your audience. That's why you should always consider creating documents that are going to be accessible as possible to everyone. In this course, we'll begin by exploring accessibility in general to get a better understanding as to what it really means, why it's important and what guidelines and best practices exist to help us meet accessibility requirements.
Then it's onto using the various features and functions available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint to help us create more accessible documents, spreadsheets and presentations. We have plenty to cover so let's get started creating accessible office documents.
