General Tips for Designing Accessible Content



UPDATE: I have moved to Google, as many of my institution's groups are hosted there. I'll still check back here from time to time, but for the most up-to-date information, please visit Accessible Design Google Group

If you are new to the concept of designing digitally accessible content, you may want to start here and also check out the Useful Websites and Downloads section of this wiki for free software to get you started. For more detailed information about accessible content creation, you can review the PDF Resources, Spreadsheet Resources, and Word Processing Resources sections of the wiki. If you use Desire2Learn, you may be interested in the Desire2Learn section of this wiki, with User's Guides and other resources.
