Introductions to Accessibility: Documents & Web Content
Oct 2021 - June 2022

The California State University

The Chancellor's Office and WebAIM have launched the next phase of accessibility training for The California State University system. The foundation of this training program is the independent-study, video-based online course—Accessible Documents: Word, PowerPoint, & Acrobat.

To support the core training provided by the online course, supplementary virtual trainings on two topics have been developed and are scheduled for quarterly delivery over Zoom.

Word, PowerPoint, & Acrobat logos

Optimizing the documents you create in Microsoft Word & PowerPoint will not only increase access for people with disabilities, it will often increase the usability of your documents for everyone. This training is a high-level introduction to accessibility guidelines and principles, and processes used in Word, PowerPoint, & Acrobat Pro DC.
