As digital technologies become more ubiquitous, accessibility becomes more important. The purpose of this guide is to point you to some resources and tools that will enable you to design and use digital products in a more accessible way.
The resources here are divided into two broad categories: those for creators and those for users.
If you are creating a document, spreadsheet, slide presentation, or other digital content, use the link to the left under "Resources for Creators" to find user guides and video tutorials that will help you to design your content in a more user friendly way. The "Resources for Creators" page will be especially useful for instructors who are looking to make their courses (syllabus, course handouts, lectures, and PowerPoint slides) accessible to a broader audience.
If you would like to find out what kinds of accessibility features are built into your Windows computer, Apple computer, or smartphone, or want to learn about other resources to assist you with using digital technology, use the link to the left under "Resources for Users."
