Office 2016 and Office 365 have recently added an Accessibility Checker tool. The Accessibility Checker allows you to scan your Word document or PowerPoint presentation for anything that may not be considered accessible.

It is important that you spend time reviewing the following knowledge base articles on how you can make your Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and PDF files more accessible:

Creating Accessible Microsoft Word Documents

Creating Accessible Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations
