Make Online Docs Appealing and Usable for ALL Your Customers! Word Techniques for Librarians (one-day workshop for library and literacy staff and volunteers)
Microsoft Word is a great starting place to make website documents professional and accessible for everyone. Online docs should be compliant with federal and state laws so patrons with disabilities will have access to your information. (See Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 & Oklahoma HB 2197.) This one-day, hands-on workshop will take attendees through the process of creating an accessible Word document to then save as a PDF.
- Create accessible headings, lists, and links
- Create text equivalents for visual elements, such as pictures
- Create accessible simple tables
- Use color effectively in documents
- Create, edit, and apply Word styles
Two prerequisites: 1) Attendee needs to be comfortable using basic features in Microsoft Word. 2) There is a required video viewing before attending: webaim.org/intro
Carolyn Bibles, software teacher, consultant, and Adult Education trainer, will teach the class.
