Learn how to run the Accessibility Checker in Microsoft Word.
- [Instructor] For our last exercise,…we're going to be running the Accessibility Checker.…And the Accessibility Checker works exactly the same…whether you're using Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.…So if you want to follow along,…open up your accessibility Word document…in the exercise file folder.…And what you're going to want to do is click on file,…check for issues, click this dropdown,…and then check accessibility.…Now over here is your Accessibility Checker.…And you can see this file has all that text…that we added in the exercises.…
Because I returned the file to its original state,…it's all missing.…So you can see the Accessibility Checker is telling us…your alt text is missing here.…And it also tells you why you need to fix it…and how to fix it.…So we have it for each of the pictures.…So a real quick way to go through any of your documents,…run the Accessibility Checker,…and then just click on each item.…It'll take you exactly where you need to go,…tell you exactly what you need to do.…Easy to run, easy to do.…
