Documents and PDFs

Accessible Documents

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors for a workshop on how to create accessible documents (including PDFs), with Ben Peck from University Relations.

PDFs, an often-overlooked document type on the web, are garnering increasing scrutiny with the recent update to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. This workshop is a great opportunity for you to learn how to create accessible documents.

Accessible Google Docs

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors on Thursday, June 25th, for a presentation by Accessibility Ambassadors Amy Drayer from University Libraries and Khaled Musa of Academic Technology Support Services. 

In this presentation, Amy will go over the ins and outs of how to create Google Docs that are usable by everyone and Khaled will provide a demonstration on using Google Docs with a screen reader, and what navigating an inaccessible Doc is like for screen reader users.


Use font type and style, text alignment, white space, and line length to ensure the structure of your digital text matches its meaning.


Include a summary in the A1 cell, give each sheet a unique name, make row and column labels specific, and keep your software current.
