Access to Information and Communication Technology
The Texas Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities is proud to host these learning modules on making Microsoft Office 2010 documents accessible to people with disabilities. These modules were created by a multi-agency team of accessibility professionals. Accessible documents are more portable and usable for everyone, not just people with disabilities because accessible documents work better across all web browsers, computer systems, and other devices. Ensuring that your documents are made in an accessible manner provides everyone with an equal opportunity to access information from your agency, program or service. The Committee encourages widespread use of these modules by public and private entities.

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal law provision requiring federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Materials on section 508 can be helpful for anyone trying to better understand how to make technology accessible.
