Making Documents Accessible

Do you want people with disabilities to read your writing? You should make it accessible.

  • Describe pictures in your documents to help people who have trouble seeing. Make your descriptions easy to understand.
  • Newer versions of Microsoft Word have an accessibility checker. Run it to see if you need to change anything.
  • Write short, clear sentences.
  • When you are making PDFs, websites, or printed documents, use fonts that are easy to read. These fonts include Trebuchet, Verdana, and Tahoma. They are good because you can tell some letters like capital I and lowercase L apart.
  • If you can, print documents in Braille. Many blind people need Braille to read printed documents.
