Depending which type of word processing software you are using, download the document from one of the following links:

In step 2.9 ‘What makes a document accessible?’ we introduced you to the principles that make content accessible.

Use the checklist, available in PDF format, (you may find it helpful to print this out) to audit the document for accessibility.

How many violations of the accessibility guidelines can you spot?

Have a look at other learners’ comments. If you can relate to a comment someone else has made, why not ‘Like’ it or leave a reply? You can filter comments by ‘Following’, ‘Most liked’ and ‘My comments’.
