Microsoft Word Accessibility Checklist
This checklist serves as a guide to make sure documentation in Word is accessible.
It is recommended to select colors with deep contrast between the foreground and background. Provide captions if using color to convey meaning.
Use the Colour Contrast Analyzer to ensure accessible contrast.
Videos, captured lectures, recorded presentations for instructional media should have captions or transcripts.
- Videos embedded in Microsoft Office are not accessible when the file is converted to Acrobat PDF. The video becomes an image.
- Embedded videos are not accessible to screen reader users or users navigating with a keyboard or some other navigation device other than a mouse.
- An alternative is to put the link of the video underneath the video itself.
