Hi,
One reason for asking is that as far as I can tell, screen reader users can't run the MS Office accessibility checking tool.

Thanks.

Jim

Hi Jim,

One that has been on my list to try out is DAT:
https://www.visionaustralia.org/dat

It has a built in checker. I use the fast insider for Word, so I wasn't sure it would work with that setting.

For colour blind checking, I screen print it and put it through a colour blind checker. Not 100% proof as the jpg could distort a tiny bit, but it gets the job done okay. Better if they worked with .tiffs.

Cheers

Lisa
