RSVP for November 7:

Are you a graduate student? Interested in learning ways to make your Word docs, PDFs, and PowerPoint presentations accessible to people who use Assistive Technology (AT)? If yes, this workshop is for you!

Presented by Gaby de Jongh, IT Accessibility Specialist for UW-IT, this workshop will go over what it’s like for someone who uses AT(Assistive Technology) to interact with a document that is not accessible and will briefly talk about the requirements and responsibilities of document creators in regards to document accessibility.

This workshop will cover the basics of creating accessible MS Word documents and PowerPoint presentations, how to use the built-in accessibility checker, and how to export these documents to create accessible PDF documents. We will briefly cover the process of PDF document remediation and what is required.

All document creators, from faculty and staff to students, are required to make sure the documents they create
and disseminate are accessible to individuals who use Assistive Technology (AT).

All graduate students are welcome!
