Accessibility Bites: Word Documents

*Note: This event has passed. Please view the resources and recordings below.

You often hear others talk about accessibility, but you’re not quite sure how to put it into practice (or maybe you just haven’t had a chance). These Accessibility sessions are for you!

Join your host Helena Prins and facilitator Josie Gray in Zoom for one or all of the five 30-minute sessions taking place on the last Thursday of every month except December.

Session 5: Word Documents

This is a short drop-in session where we will explore how to create accessible content in Microsoft Word.

What to bring: A document you want to make accessible — preferably one you use in your work. We will focus on Microsoft Word, but you can bring a Google Doc or webpage too. We will also have a Word document to practice with if you don’t have anything.


  • 10 minutes: Presentation to highlight some key things to keep in mind when you review your documents.
  • 15 minutes: Everyone works individually on their own document to identify and fix accessibility errors. Your host and facilitator will be available for questions.
  • 5 minutes: Everyone will come together to reflect on how it went and ask additional questions.
