The Purdue University Web Accessibility Committee announces a new resource for creating accessible online documents.

When a document is added to any type of web page, that document must be accessible to people with disabilities. There are simple techniques you can use to improve the accessibility of documents as they are created. This resource will provide you with tips and resources so you can learn to use these techniques.

Created by Purdue’s Web Accessibility Committee, the Tips for Creating Accessible Online Documents resource offers tips for creating accessible Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and PDF documents and contains links to other resources for additional information. The resource is available to view or download on the Web Accessibility Committee Website.
