Finally.



MS Office for Mac 2016 - August update includes the Accessibility Checker
that was previously available in Windows versions.



This report says it is available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but my
update today (dated Aug 6) only updated Word and Excel.

Find the AC under Review tab in the menu - sorry I don't see the keyboard
equivalent.

Confirming that Word and Excel for MSO for Mac 2016 updated (on Aug 6) and NOT PowerPoint (still using July update). So Accessibility Checker is still not available for PowerPoint in Mac.

Folks,

I really don't have the time to learn about this checker, but I do have a Mac book pro and the name caught my attention.

Can someone give me bullet points on what it does to see if it behooves me to have it? Thanks a bunch.

Hi everyone

I have the latest version of Word for Mac and can’t see the accessibility checker under review. Am I missing something?

Hi Karen,

I have the Insider version of 2016 Mac Word, so my version may be ahead of
the regular ones...Can anyone else confirm this with a regular version of
2016?

Cheers

Lisa

I am using MS Word for Mac, Version 15.25 (160806)

The AC is listed under Review on the Ribbon in the Word window. But under the Mac toolbar (at the top of the screen), it is listed under Tools. So it is in both places.

Finally.



MS Office for Mac 2016 - August update includes the Accessibility Checker that was previously available in Windows versions.



This report says it is available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but my update today (dated Aug 6) only updated Word and Excel.

First, you need the latest version of MS Office (MSO) for Mac, which is the 2016 version, and you need the latest updates that came out a few days ago (August updates). If you subscribe to Office 365, you can install MSO on up to five devices (Macs, Windows and IOS devices or any combination) and they all update automatically. You may need to run the MS Update to ensure that you have the latest updates. BTW, the update for PowerPoint came out 2-3 days after the ones for Excel and Word.

Basically, the Accessibility Checker (AC) is a tool that reviews your document and cites issues related to accessibility following most of the standard WCAG rules (e.g., Headings, ALT description, etc.). There are some additional "Warning" things that MS has thrown in like "Repeated blank characters."

See "Guidance on Applying WCAG 2.0 to Non-Web Information and Communications Technologies (WCAG2ICT)": https://www.w3.org/TR/wcag2ict/

When you use the AC tool, a new window pops up with the list of Errors and Warnings, and when you click on the individual Error or Warning, a description appears below explaining (Why fix?) and the steps needed to mitigate the error.

The tool is good for training people who are new to accessible design and in enterprise situations where you know your documents are going public. It is particularly helpful with large documents when trying to find all of the glitches can take a long time.

The AC has been available in the Windows version of MSO since I think 2010, so it is long overdue in the Mac version.

Thank you so much John. I appreciate the knowledge.

I have to have 2016 installed on my Mac and I'll check my Windows version to see if I can find it.

First, you need the latest version of MS Office (MSO) for Mac, which is the 2016 version, and you need the latest updates that came out a few days ago (August updates). If you subscribe to Office 365, you can install MSO on up to five devices (Macs, Windows and IOS devices or any combination) and they all update automatically. You may need to run the MS Update to ensure that you have the latest updates. BTW, the update for PowerPoint came out 2-3 days after the ones for Excel and Word.

Basically, the Accessibility Checker (AC) is a tool that reviews your document and cites issues related to accessibility following most of the standard WCAG rules (e.g., Headings, ALT description, etc.). There are some additional "Warning" things that MS has thrown in like "Repeated blank characters."

See "Guidance on Applying WCAG 2.0 to Non-Web Information and Communications Technologies (WCAG2ICT)": https://www.w3.org/TR/wcag2ict/

When you use the AC tool, a new window pops up with the list of Errors and Warnings, and when you click on the individual Error or Warning, a description appears below explaining (Why fix?) and the steps needed to mitigate the error.

The tool is good for training people who are new to accessible design and in enterprise situations where you know your documents are going public. It is particularly helpful with large documents when trying to find all of the glitches can take a long time.

The AC has been available in the Windows version of MSO since I think 2010, so it is long overdue in the Mac version.

I tried to check out a few documents with it, but I got no reports. I use JAWS 17.

Isn't it supposed to show the issues under the Info tab in Office 2013 for Windows?

Hey John

Thanks for your help. I am on version 15.24 which is obviously the problem. I have done a check for updates and there are none available so maybe it is being rolled out?

I am using MS Word for Mac, Version 15.25 (160806)

The AC is listed under Review on the Ribbon in the Word window. But under the Mac toolbar (at the top of the screen), it is listed under Tools. So it is in both places.

Finally.



MS Office for Mac 2016 - August update includes the Accessibility Checker that was previously available in Windows versions.



This report says it is available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but my update today (dated Aug 6) only updated Word and Excel.

Looks like you are in New Zealand - MS may have a different schedule for delivery for other countries (wild guess on my part).

IT is also possible that the AC only works with American English...

Anyone know?

Hey John

Thanks for your help. I am on version 15.24 which is obviously the problem. I have done a check for updates and there are none available so maybe it is being rolled out?

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] Accessibility Checker - Office 2016 for Mac

Folks,

I really don't have the time to learn about this checker, but I do have a
Mac book pro and the name caught my attention.

Can someone give me bullet points on what it does to see if it behooves me
to have it? Thanks a bunch.

I have the insider's fast build and PowerPoint now has it, so it should go
live to others soon I would guess. Finally!!!

Finally.



MS Office for Mac 2016 - August update includes the Accessibility Checker
that was previously available in Windows versions.



This report says it is available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but my
update today (dated Aug 6) only updated Word and Excel.

Find the AC under Review tab in the menu - sorry I don't see the keyboard
equivalent.

Sadly, not yet (on the desktop). :-(

I know, I know…

That said, if you have access to Adobe’s online services (which comes with their subscription model for Acrobat), you can upload your well-structured Word file and get back a (reasonably) well-tagged PDF.

This link from Microsoft indicates that PDF tagging is available on the Mac version of Word 2016 build 15.23.1 and greater.

https://microsoftaccessibility.uservoice.com/forums/307429-microsoft-accessibility-feedback/suggestions/12427344-help-us-make-accessible-pdfs-from-office-for-mac?tracking_codeÁ3e423465b9dd1bcd09d5787e9b1180

[quoted from link] I am happy to say that this feature is now available in Word 2016 for the MAC in builds 15.23.1 and greater. The currently release does not support any Far East languages or any languaages that are Right to Left. However, this is planned to be addressed in the next few updates.

Thanks for the correction!

I’m not sure it’s really on the desktop - it seems one has to select the “online service” option in the Export dialog to get a tagged PDF.

Still.. it’s progress for sure!

Yes, you have to use the online service, which is odd to me. I need to know
way more about what they do to use it on the Mac. I found that really odd
when I first saw it.
