Creating accessible documents

These guidelines will teach you how to correctly structure your documents so that the greatest number of people can access them.

Creating documents with accessibility in mind doesn't just benefit people with physical or visual impairments, it benefits everyone. This is because the same tools that make documents more accessible make them easier to navigate, search, and read.

Simple tools and tricks, such as, “Tagging” your document, can mean the difference between 1,000 people viewing your document and 10,000 people viewing your document.

Additionally, structuring your documents accessibly is a legal requirement, and is in line with Western's commitment to accessibility.
