We are all content creators, from online course materials to documents and presentations. Therefore, we should all strive to make our content as accessible as possible. These resources offer some first steps to help make content accessible and to learn why this is such an important endeavor. For tools and content not covered here, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help!
