Section 508 Best Practices Webinar - February 2: Accessible Electronic Documents - Accessible Document in MS Word 2010

Section 508 Best Practices Webinar: Accessible Electronic Documents - Authoring Guide for Making an Accessible Document in MS Word 2010 (Postponed to February 2 from January 27)
The next webinar in the Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series will take place February 2 from 1:00 to 2:30 (ET) and will review the draft "Authoring Guide for Making an Accessible Document in MS Word 2010." This guide was prepared by the Accessible Electronic Document Community of Practice which has drafted the "Harmonized Processes for Section 508 Testing: Baseline Tests for Accessible Electronic Documents—MS Word 2010" as a best practice. This best practice will establish the minimum steps required to determine whether an electronic document produced in Microsoft Office Word 2010 passes or fails Section 508 requirements. The tests have been agreed upon as part of an effort to provide a unified approach to Section 508 testing across government, to increase consistency, and to build confidence in test results shared between agencies.

The Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series provides helpful information and best practices for federal agencies in meeting their obligations under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act which ensures access to electronic and information technology in the federal sector. This webinar series is made available by the Accessibility Community of Practice of the CIO Council in partnership with the U.S. Access Board.
