Creating accessible documents

During studies, Information is conveyed in a variety of ways. Lectures accompanied by visual presentations, lecture notes in PDF format, and exercise sheets in Word documents are most likely well-known to you. These formats can, however, be especially challenging for people with cognitive or physical impairments, as the content will not be easily accessible to them. In light of this, we have provided guides on how to create accessible documents for various programs and platforms on this page. On the one hand, they describe how exactly documents can be made accessible and on the other, they show how accessibility can be tested using the in-built tools of different programs.

Clear structured pages and easily accessible content ultimately increases usability for all of us. At present, this page still contains links to some instructions from external providers. We are in the process of replacing these with our own guides using both text and video, allowing active participation for everyone.
