Crosswalk signal. The walk image is lit up

Callout 2 Position, image, and color
Callout 3 Image lights up

So is there anything you could do to your documents to make them more accessible to people who have hearing, mobility, cognitive, or seizure disabilities? Yes, and in this lesson we'll show you how.

Once again, we'll look at how people might be using their computers and what we can do to make our documents readable for them.
