Accessible Documents

There are many forms of documents which are used during a learning session. These may include; Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft PowerPoint documents and PDF documents.  All three types of documents can be used electronically, either during presentations or by offering students electronic versions of the documents to store and review.  They can also be used in print format - as handouts during a session, for example. These documents may also include equations, charts, graphs, infographics, and tables which need to be accessible for all.
