Event description

Description

Despite the progress made on accessible document conversion software, those of us who live with disabilities still find most of the documents they generate to be inaccessible. This is because accessibility isn’t a feature that can be applied, with the flip of a switch. It's actually a series of steps that occur within the document code.

While some software programs can apply a layer of navigation to most documents, they simply are not advanced enough to detect subtle aspects of navigation structure that assistive tech devices depend upon. They also are not able to craft accurate and meaningful alternative text tags.

WeCo’s Accessible Document 3- hour workshop teaches you/your staff everything you need to know to:

  1. Construct accessible Word, Power Point, PDF documents and Outlook email messages, by helping you insert meaningful navigation points.

  2. Understand how to construct alternative text tags that convey meaning to nonvisual users. (Including the debate around how much is too much/too little in a description.)

  3. Generate accessible PDF’s every time.

  4. Review documents that have been converted by software to determine if they are/aren’t accessible to real users.

  5. Learn how to ensure that documents you post on the web are, and remain, accessible.

HANDS-ON WORKSHOP: WeCo Document Specialists will guide you through the steps you need to take to make documents accessible. Please bring a laptop or notebook that can access the internet, to this workshop.

INCLUDES OUR ACCESSIBLE DOCUMENT REFERENCE GUIDE: WeCo’s Accessible Microsoft Document Reference Guide (accessible electronic document) is yours to take home with this training.

Great for anyone who posts documents to websites, creates them or manages documents for others.
