This two-hour Webinar will review the basics of creating accessible documents using Microsoft Office programs Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. We'll explore accessibility issues common to each of these programs, as well as unique situations for each one. You'll be able to follow the creation of these documents and participate on your own computer, performing the tasks while listening to the instructor. Sample documents will be emailed to you when you confirm your registration.
This information is useful for anyone who uses Word, Excel or PowerPoint, not just Information Technology professionals. It is useful for both PC and Mac users.
We encourage everyone (e.g., people in higher education settings) to host the Webinar in a computer lab, to enable more people to use individual computers in a group setting.
