Making Accessible Forms in MS Word
Thursday October 16 at 2 PM Eastern
Presenters: Dan Clark from Freedom Scientific and Norm Coombs from EASI

Did you ever use Word to send someone a form to fill out and return with
the requested information filled in? I did, and I confess I left blank
spaces instead of using genuine form fields.
Imagine making a genuine form with edit boxes where the people filled in
the requested information? Imagine even being able to use radio buttons to
check? How about even having a drop down combo box with choices they are to
select? and imagine making it so it would be fully accessible to people
using adaptive technologies?
Don't imagine it any more! This Webinar will demonstrate just how you can
do that. This is a much more professional way to collect information, and
this Webinar will show that it isn't really very difficult.

You need to register in advance. This will guarantee you a seat in the
Webinar room and it will also mean that you will received a link to the
recording 2-3 days after the presentation. Register from the link on the
EASI Webinar page:

Note the other public and fee-based Webinars while you are there.

Also, in November the month-long EASI online course is about accessible
e-learning and how faculty can create accessible course content
