Accessible Content Checklist

Creating accessible documents and course resources is a necessary step toward a classroom environment that supports the learning of all students. This checklist identifies several of the basic steps relevant to creating accessible documents.

Note: This is not an exhaustive list to creating accessible content. Text in a file or on a web page is accessible to people with print disabilities as long as simple accessibility standards are followed.

If you need assistance creating accessible content, please submit the IT Accessibility Consultation request.
