How to Check Accessibility and Compatibility in Word
If your document has a lot of advanced effects, graphics, tables, or videos, you may run into trouble opening it in older versions of Word. It may also be difficult for people with disabilities to read. Word can automatically check your document to find potential compatibility and accessibility problems.
The Accessibility pane appears on the right, listing anything in the document that would make it less accessible.
Some common problems include the lack of alternative text on images or meaningful hyperlink text, color-coding without additional context, and headings that aren’t in a logical order for a screen reader to parse.
