Barrier-free E-learning has been significantly updated and also enriched
with new multimedia. The course now is based on the realization that
course content authors, faculty and instructional designers, are placing
that content inside a courseware or learning management system. Most of
the Web accessibility issues relate to that interface, and only a few
accessibility features are relevant to the actual course content. This
makes creating accessible content much simpler. The revisions focus on a
limited set of accessibility issues and also stresses how to achieve
accessibility using familiar software that designers are already using.

Course Lessons

Lesson 2: Creating Accessible Content with MS office (word, PowerPoint
