Accessible Documents


On this half day course we will provide users with the knowledge they need to create accessible documents using the basic office packages, alongside more advanced skills, and tips. We find that this training is useful to a wide audience as most content creators within organisations do not have access to advanced publishing tools. This session will cover all of the basic principles public sector staff need to know in order to create accessible by design documents in accordance with legal requirements.

We also provide expert insight on best approaches for items such as planning documents under the regulations, with All Able now having a thoroughly worked exemption case for these documents following team experiences of challenges.
