Jisc TechDis - Accessible Documents and Presentations

Jisc TechDis - Accessible Documents and Presentations | Student Support | Scoop.it

 

These materials are for anyone who creates documents and presentations in their work. There are many reasons why you should ensure that the documents and presentations you create are accessible and inclusive.

There is a legal obligation for organisations to ensure that no-one is disadvantaged because of a disability.There is a requirement to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that as many people as possible can access your services. These adjustments should be anticipatory, which means they need to be in place before you are aware that a disabled user is having problems.

Making your documents and presentations accessible is good practice which can benefit all users regardless of ability.

This is a classic video from the University of Wisconsin-Madison that will open your empathy eyes and help you see (and hear) what it is like to use a screen reader. 


Accessibility is essential for all users. Section 508 (the ADA of the Internet) has been around for a long time.  UDL is making strides in course design.  Technology is improving... Still this information may be new to many.  Watch and imagine you were dependent on technology to read online. 

Lynne Tamor's curator insight, May 27, 2014 3:20 PM

A good first glance at what it's like to use a screen reader. An introduction, not a how-to.
