Webinar: Accessibility in the Google World

Date: June 29, 2022
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm

Program Description

Accessibility word cloudWhile there are some general tools that are needed to create accessible content, every platform hides the tools in different locations or with a different name. It is important to ensure our content is accessible no matter the platform we use to create it. When content is fully accessible, it is beneficial to people with vision impairments, learning disabilities, color blindness, and many others who do not identify as having a disability.

This training walks participants through the steps of creating accessible content in Google Docs and Slides.

Participants will learn:

  • How to structure a document
  • Where to find accessibility tools
  • How to create alt-text/tags for images
  • And how to check the accessibility of a document/slide
