12/09 Document Accessibility: We will focus on applying what was learned in the Top 7 Accessibility Tips session to creating an accessible Microsoft Word or Google Document.

It is recommended that you attend the Top 7 Accessibility Tips training session or a similar accessibility basics training session or course before this one, but it is not required.
