Creating Accessible Documents 1
Toronto, Ontario
February 11, 2020
With Ontario’s commitment to be a fully accessible province by 2025 through the implementation of the AODA, knowing how to create accessible learning materials is crucial! Humber College has committed to Accessible Education as one of its Strategic Pillars. Creating and providing accessible documents is about inclusion, equity, and social responsibility.

Creating Accessible Documents 1 (CAD1) will review WCAG accessibility guidelines and AODA requirements applicable to creating digital content and documents. In this 2-hour hands-on session, you will learn the fundamentals of creating accessible materials and modify inaccessible content to comply with accessibility standards. You will walk away with strategies and a toolbox full of apps and resources to help with making your content accessible.
