Are your Microsoft Office Documents Accessible? If your answer is, “Yes, I know where they are located” this seminar is for you… Accessibility is the degree to which a product, device, service, or environment is available to as many people as possible.  Documentation is accessible if it can be used as effectively by people with disabilities as by those without disabilities. Creating and distributing accessible documents is not only being ethically responsible, your organization may be required to do so by law.  Working with Syracuse University, New Horizons has developed a training program that will ensure that anyone responsible for creating documentation understands the fundamentals of preparing accessible documents in the Microsoft Office 2013 suite.  This 50 minute introductory seminar is designed to provide awareness of the common design elements used to create Office documentation that is electronically accessible to everyone.
