- All images must have alternative text (In Word and PowerPoint: right click, edit alt text).
- All formatting is done with styles. Every page has at least one line tagged H1 (do not use the Title tag in Word, screenreaders skip it).
- Instead of Bold, use the style Strong. (In Word and PowerPoint, use the Strong style button. In html use the Strong tag.)
- Instead of Italics, use the style Emphasis. (In Word and PowerPoint, use the Emphasis style button. In html use the Emphasis tag.)
- Ensure you have sufficient color contrast.
- Do not rely on color as a single identifier. Underline hyperlinks and use patterns in charts and graphs.
- Tables in Word: Include alternative text and have the header row repeated on new pages.
- In PowerPoint, every slide must start with a Slide Master – never draw a text box.
- If not presenting through Teams when using PowerPoint, turn on subtitles.
- Check accessibility on PFDs, Word Files, and PowerPoint files with the “check accessibility” function. On webpages, use Siteimprove to check accessibility.
