Creating Accessible Forms in Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF
Offered by the Disability Access Services of the Department of Rehabilitation
This class will cover the basic steps in the creation of accessible forms in both Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF. Some pros and cons of each format will be discussed. Additionally an emphasis will be placed on the importance of using assistive technologies and human testing in accessibility checks. All too often form authors rely solely on software tools to check for accessibility resulting in forms that have significant problems with both accessibility and usability for persons who utilize assistive technologies.
As a result of attending this class, participants will be able to:
Create accessible forms using Microsoft Word 2010 and Adobe Acrobat X or XI Pro
Understand how assistive technologies navigate forms.
This class is recommended for anyone who is responsible for creating forms. This class is not intended for new Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Pro users. The information taught in this class is specific to the accessibility features within the software.
