Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint have a tool available to help identify and remediate accessibility issues.
The tool is available at File > Info > Check for Issues > Check Accessibility.
The Accessibility Checker will appear in the right-hand sidebar.
When you highlight the error two things happen:
- Additional information about the error, warning, or tip appears below the box with instructions for remediating the issue.
- The item is selected on the slide.
Follow the instructions displayed at the bottom of the checker to fix the issue.
Please note that the accessibility checker is not able to identify all accessibility issues. You may learn more about creating accessible electronic documents on the WebAim website.
