Creating Accessible Documents and Web Content

When creating content, there are a few basic steps to follow in order to assure your content is accessible. The steps needed for accessibility are the same regardless of whether your document is in HTML, Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF, or originating from multiple softwares:

  • File Properties: Title and Author 
  • Identify Language, or Multiple Language Defined
  • Use headings
  • Use lists
  • Use meaningful hyperlinks
  • Add alternate text to images
  • Use tables wisely: Table Headers, Table Summary and Simplicity
  • Understand how to export from one format to another
  • Navigable: Bookmarks and Table of Contents when appropriate
  • Logical Reading Order 

To gain a better understanding of these core concepts, see Our Requirements for accessible terminology and concepts.
