Library and Learning Services Accessibility Help Guide: Accessibility in the classroom
An internal guide for Sheridan Library staff to answer their questions about accessibility, UDL and AODA requirements.
Try to avoid using textboxes since screen readers cannot read the content inside these textboxes
Use 12 to 14 point font size
Make sure your document has proper colour contrast - dark background, light text or vice versa
All images must have alternate text added so a screen reader can read that content
Use headings as much as possible when starting a new line of text
Creating Accessible PDFs
Just because something is a PDF, doesn't mean it's automatically able to be read by a screen reader.
Here are some tips on how to make your PDF documents accessible:
Some PDFs require OCR to be added so the content can be read by a screenreader.
If you go to tools and accessibility, you are able to run a full accessibility report of your document to understand what the issues are
Add alternate text to all images used in the PDF. You can access this through Tools - Accessibility - Set alternate text. This is very important because if your image contains vital information for your user, they won't be able to read the content they need without alt text added.
Autotag the document for a basic idea of the reading order of this document. You can always edit and make changes to these tags by clicking on the reading order button in the accessibility menu
