Section 508 Best Practices Webinar: Accessible Electronic Documents -
Authoring Guide for Making an Accessible Document in MS Word 2010 (January
27)  

The next webinar in the Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series will take
place January 27 from 1:00 to 2:30 (ET) and will review the draft "Authoring
Guide for Making an Accessible Document in MS Word 2010." This guide was
prepared by the Accessible Electronic Document Community of Practice which
has drafted the "Harmonized Processes for Section 508 Testing: Baseline
Tests for Accessible Electronic Documents-MS Word 2010" as a best practice.
This best practice will establish the minimum steps required to determine
whether an electronic document produced in Microsoft Office Word 2010 passes
or fails Section 508 requirements. The tests have been agreed upon as part
of an effort to provide a unified approach to Section 508 testing across
government, to increase consistency, and to build confidence in test results
shared between agencies.
