Create Accessible Digital Documents (LSA Disability Navigator Workshop)

As we shift from print to digital documents in the workplace, it's important to ensure all readers and contributors can access the content. If document users include individuals who are color blind, use assistive technologies, or process information differently, will they be able to effectively engage with the content?This workshop will focus on how to create digital documents in Word and Google Docs that are more user-friendly and accessible. In addition to demonstrations, there will be opportunities to apply what you are learning in real time.Participants will learn about:
1. The benefit of accessible documents and how specific features support diverse users.2. How to build more accessible documents in Microsoft Word and Google Documents.3. Tools to assist with document accessibility.4. Resources to deepen knowledge on document accessibility.Audience:
This is a beginner-level workshop open to any LSA employee, including our undergraduate and graduate student employees. LSA employees receive priority access, so while external guests are welcome to register they will be waitlisted and moved off the waitlist as space allows.Format:This workshop will be conducted virtually on Zoom. Camera use is optional and this workshop will not be recorded. Auto-captioning will be enabled and slides will be distributed following the workshop. We strongly recommend using a desktop or laptop computer to join this workshop, as there will be opportunities to apply what you learn to a practice document and instructions will be based on the desktop versions of the word processors. There will be time for questions and participants will have the option to submit anonymously via the Q&A function.

The LSA DEI Office greatly values inclusion and access for all. We are pleased to provide reasonable accommodations to enable your full participation in this workshop. Please contact Jessica McCuaig at if you would like to request disability accommodations or have any questions or concerns.
