Student Access Center


Documents are no longer just handed out in class, but often viewed electronically either through email or on KSOL.  Therefore, it is important to create documents that are accessible to every student.

Accessibility in documents is all about structure.  Structure in a document refers to the order in which document elements are accessed.  The proper use of headings (<h1> - <h6>) allow users of adaptive technology to navigate the document by it's structure.  Similarly, lists should either be ordered, where the order of the information is important, or unordered, where each list item is of equal importance.  Ordered lists are numbered, whereas, unordered lists are not.
