Event Overview

This live demonstration will show users how to make improvements to a Word document, both for the author and the recipient, focussing on accessibility e.g. Styles, colour/font for text, justification, alt-text, charts and graphs (colour especially), bold/italic/underline.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session.

Links will be made available to show how to apply these tips when used with other documents (e.g. PPT) and practices (e.g. webpages, email).
