Event Details

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.  

 Topics include:

  • 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.

Travel stipend for overnight stay may be available if public library, library system, tribal library or literacy organization is 60 miles or more from ODL. Initial travel stipend paperwork must be returned to ODL before the class date.  Contact Doris Dixon to request paperwork via email Doris.Dixon@libraries.ok.gov or phone (405) 522-3217. Stipend will be based on lodging receipt,up to $92. If lodging charges are less than $92, the contract will be written for the actual amount, not $92. Mileage also may be reimbursed at 30 cents/mile if you are paying for your own gas & cannot collect from your library/literacy organization. Stipend contracts will be made out to the library/literacy organization. It will be your responsibility to collect your reimbursement from such organization. No travel stipend contracts will be paid until the class has been attended and photocopied proof of overnight stay (if applicable) has been submitted to the Office of Library Development.
