Three Useful MS Word Accessibility Concepts You Can Start Using Today


Most of us use a word processor every day, but not all documents are created equal.


Using features built into MS Word, we can start creating accessible documents everyone can easily and efficiently read.


How to do this

By understanding and using three basic concepts:

  • Logically structured headings
  • Built-in tools that create structure
  • Image descriptions


By using these concepts, you will make a world of difference to people who use assistive technology to access your documents.
