Learn about the challenges facing students, faculty and staff with disabilities and how you can empower this population though accessible design.

People who are blind, low-vision or have dyslexia rely on assistive technologies and screenreading software to “read text out loud” to them. However, many documents created are completely inaccessible or just frustrating for screenreader users. Public documents posted on websites and emailed to public list serves should be accessible to people who use screenreaders. During this hour long active learning session, you will have the opportunity to get hands-on training in making accessible PDF and Word documents. Please bring a complex Word document you have created and you will receive real-time consultation in how to build in accessibility.
