Creating digital content is a big part of our daily workflow; process manuals, minutes, memos, and presentations using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Adobe PDF, or other applications. If these documents are for an audience or held on the Cal State LA web, they should be created using accessibility techniques to ensure that everyone can access the information. ITS accessibility challenges the university community to implement accessibility best practices when authoring their digital content. Take the pledge and keep Cal State LA inclusive.
