Best Practices

  • Use a table of contents.
  • Use the column tool instead of a table.
    • If a table is the best way to present the material add a header row.
    • Avoid split and merged cells in tables. Screen readers cannot read them.
  • Avoid using decorative text boxes. Screen readers cannot read the text that is inside.
  • Lock documents by using document protection features in Microsoft Word.
