Creating Accessible Documents for JAWS or MAGic users

Date: Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Location: Webinar (further information will be sent following registration)
Presenter: Freedom Scientific

Join us as Freedom Scientific gives an overview of creating accessible documents for JAWS or MAGic users. We will briefly look at how including headings for navigation in Word, as well as other things, can help JAWS users navigate more efficiently in documents. Do you know how to create column and row headers for Word tables that will read automatically for JAWS users? Can you create column and row headers in Excel that read automatically for JAWS users? You don't even have to own JAWS or MAGic to create accessible headers for Word tables or Excel ranges. JAWS takes advantage of the bookmark feature in Word and the define names feature in Excel to accomplish this. We will also discuss do's and don'ts for creating accessible PowerPoint presentations. On the Web, screen reader and screen magnification users can use headings, ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) regions, the <nav> element in HTML5, the title attribute for required fields in HTML forms, and more.

For all of the above we provide resources to help you get more information, including step-by-step instructions in most cases. We'll cover MAGic, JAWS and Focus14Blue.

This will be presented on the Talking Communities platform. There is no space limit, but don't wait to register.
