Event Type: 

Many of the documents you create using Word might end up being shared or distributed to others as email attachments or through websites.  They may also be viewed on a cell phone or turned into pdfs. Taking a few simple steps you can increase the accessibility of your documents which will translate into having your content be reachable to viewers and users who are mobile or who may resort to assistive technology to read documents.  Even better! You will be contributing to creating accessible pdfs when you start with an accessible Word document.
