Join your host Helena Prins and facilitator Josie Gray in Zoom for one or all of the five 30-minute sessions taking place on the last Thursday of every month except December.

Session 5: Word Documents 

Feb 29, 2024 from 12:00 to 12:30 PM PT

Title: Accessibility Bites: Make Your Word Documents Accessible 

This is a short drop-in session where we will explore how to create accessible content in Microsoft Word. 

What to bring:  

A document you want to make accessible – preferably one that you use in your work. We will focus on Microsoft Word but you can bring something in Google Docs or a web page too if that's what you want to work on. (We will also have one to practice on if you don’t have anything). 


10 minutes – A presentation will highlight some key things to keep in mind when reviewing your document. 

15 minutes - Everyone works individually on their own document to identify and fix accessibility errors. Your host and facilitator will be available for questions. 

5 minutes - Everyone will come back together to reflect on how that went and ask any additional questions.
