Description

This course is taught live with a strong focus on customized hands-on guidance for your staff from experienced accessible document professionals. Our goal is for you to leave this training ready to work on accessible document conversion and authorship immediately.

Learn how to make Microsoft Word, Powerpoing and PDF document accessible to people living with disabilities. WeCo founder, Lynn Wehrman, who founded the accessible document process used by the State of MN Department of Transportation, leads you though a complete understanding of:

  • Why accessibility is a process, and not a feature found in a software program or mechanism
  • How people living with all type of disablities interact with your documents (device and non-device related)
  • A simple, sustainable process for making Microsoft Word and Power Point accessible when you create them
  • How to convert documents that have already been created, into an accessible format
  • What you can do to ensure that PDFs are accessible before you release them
