Educators: As part of their transition plan, students preparing to graduate should be researching and gathering information about accessibility laws, how to create accessible content, and these students need to be able to teach others and/or share resources that demonstrate how to create accessible content. There are numerous posts on Paths to Technology about how to create accessible Word documents, PowerPoint Presentations, etc. including this post which contains simple handouts for geared educators. Below are additional resources geared for employers.
