Accessibility checklist

Accessible course content makes it easier for everyone to read and access your materials and can help improve overall quality and usability. There are many low-effort adjustments you can make to start creating more accessible content.

  • Use a font size of at least 12px.
  • Have sufficient contrast between text and background.

    Use a tool like the Colour Contrast Analyser from The Paciello Group to check the contrast of your text.

  • Use proper heading styles.
  • Use a logical heading structure.
  • Add alternative descriptions to images that convey the full meaning of the image.
  • Use tables for tabular data only.
  • Ensure that all tables have column headers.
  • Use built-in list functionality for all lists.
  • Ensure that all links have text that describes the target.
  • Use built-in PowerPoint slide templates.
  • Don’t use scanned PDFs.
  • Ensure that all PDFs are tagged.
