Create an accessible Microsoft Word document and PowerPoint presentation. Under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act it is required that all electronic and information technology be accessible to people with disabilities. Students with print disabilities, as well as students who have vision and hearing impairments need accessible content. Participants will have the opportunity to produce a Word document and short PowerPoint presentation that includes the use of alternative tags, column headers, styles and headings, hyperlink text and video descriptions. Pitfalls for creating accessible materials will be explored and elements to be avoided will also be analyzed. By the end of the session participants will have produced a document and will have the knowledge to make every document moving forward accessible to all their learners.
