Accessible course content makes it easier for everyone to read and access your materials and can help improve overall quality and usability. There are many low-effort adjustments you can make to start creating more accessible content. 


  • Use a font size of at least 12px.
  • Ensure that there is sufficient contrast between text and background. The Paciello Group Contrast Analyzer is a great tool.
  • Ensure that proper heading styles are used.
  • Ensure that a logical heading structure is used.
  • Ensure that images have an alternative description that can convey the full meaning of the image.
  • Ensure that tables are used for tabular data only.
  • Ensure that all tables have column headings.
  • Ensure that all lists use built-in list functionality.
  • Ensure that all links have text that describes the target.
  • Ensure that built-in PowerPoint slide templates are used.
  • Don’t use scanned PDFs.
  • Ensure that all PDFs are tagged.
