How To Enable or Disable The Accessibility Checker in Microsoft Office Programs?

Before we share our Presentation, Document, Spreadsheet or even E-Mail Message, we have to make sure our Content is easy for people with abilities to read and edit. This is where the Accessibility Checker shows up in Microsoft Office Files. It finds most Accessibility Issues and it explains why each issue might be a potential problem for someone with a disability. Below you can check out how it works and how to activate it.

The Accessibility Checker also suggest how we can resolve each issue that appears. The Accessibility Checker, depending on how important the issue might be, it classifies the issue either as an Error, Warning or Tip.

  • Error: Content that makes it difficult or even impossible to read and understand for people with disabilities.
  • Warning: Content that it most cases makes it difficult to understand with people with disabilities.
  • Tip: Content that people with disabilities will understand, but it would be better for them if it was presented to them in a different way.
  • Intelligent Services. Content that is made accessible automatically, which we should review for accuracy and context.
