Creating Accessible Documents

Do you create MS Word, MS PowerPoint or PDF documents? If so, then you are a digital designer. As digital designers, we all have a responsibility to create a more accessible world. This toolkit will provide you with the basic techniques for creating accessible documents.

Documents that are designed following the recommended guidelines will provide access to a greater number of users. Typical barriers in the design of documents when access is not considered are:

  • Images with no alt text
  • Poor contrast
  • Links that are not descriptive
  • Lack of heading structure
  • Text that is not clear or large enough

By using the resources provided in this toolkit, you will be able to resolve these and other barriers.
