Making your course materials accessible ensures that they usable by the widest range of users, but also ensures your web pages and documents are easier to edit and navigate. It is important to make these changes to accommodate a variety of disabilities. When creating content, there are a few basic steps that should be followed in order to ensure your content is accessible. The core steps needed for accessibility are the same regardless of whether your document is in onQ, MS Office, or another platforms. In this session you will learn what common accessibility elements you can add to your Word documents and onQ pages to increase accessibility and usability for all students. We will explore the need of accessible elements:
• Headings
• Lists
• Links
• Images
• Tables
• Testing for accessibility
