ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Creating Accessible Documents 
Workshop description

Educators create. Presentations, worksheets, exams, practice problems - educators create any number of resources to help their learners. As more and more of our materials are shared in the classroom as well as digitally through online resources, it is important to be aware of learners with physical challenges.

This workshop will provide basic information and vocabulary of how to add key accessibility features to your documents and presentations. There are many tools available to check for 508 Compliance and to ensure ALL of your learners have access to the materials you create. Resources, checklists and online tools provided. This session will demonstrate 508 Compliance features using Microsoft ® products on the Windows operating system.

Prerequisites: Participants should have a good understanding of basic word processing and presentation software. Participants should have access to Microsoft products (Word, Powerpoint, and Excel) if they plan to follow along.
