Description
Part 1: Creating Accessible Word Documents (PC) or (Mac)

Microsoft Word is one of the most widely used word processing applications. Instructors use Microsoft Word to share documents with their students but may not be aware of the accessibility issues students with disabilities may be confronted with. Learn how to use the accessibility features in Word to quickly create documents that will be usable for the majority of your students.

Part 2: Captioning Videos

Does your course contain videos or animations? Are the videos and animations closed captioned? Closed captioning your videos and animations will not only benefit learners with disabilities but can improve learning for learners with a range of other needs or strengths (ESL, attention deficit). Explore how to use YouTube and Amara to quickly and easily add closed captioning to videos and animations. During this session, you will add closed captions to a video you are currently using or want to include in your course using YouTube and Amara.
