Basic Document Accessibility
This workshop is recommended for anyone who creates and publicly shares digital Word or PDF documents via web or email, and has already taken an introductory course on accessibility.
If you have not previously taken an introductory course on accessibility and do not use the CMS please contact the instructor.
Requires access to Microsoft Word 2016 and Acrobat Pro DC. Software is available for use in the Goldfarb and Farber computer labs and can be downloaded to any Brandeis-owned computer free of charge. See ITS for details.
You will learn:
- how to implement best practices for content creation in MS Word
how to properly export a PDF from MS Word while preserving accessibility features
how to remediate PDFs using Acrobat DC Pro
All in-person accessibility workshops have been canceled through April 30, 2020 due to the recent university guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are working on creating online tutorials so that you may still get the skills you need as soon as possible. Online workshops and tutorials will be posted as they become available.
