Content styles


Accessibility often focuses on people with disabilities or special needs and their right of access, enabling the use of assistive technology.

The best way to create accessible content is to create an accessible source document using proper content styles.

Use headings

Use the heading styles to create a logical document structure.

Use lists

Use the list styles to group together related items. If the items follow a specific sequence, use a numbered list instead. Don’t use punctuation or other markers to create the illusion of a list.

Use readable body text

Use left aligned text. Don’t use justified text in your document.

Don’t use chunks of italicised or capitalised text, and don’t underline text unless it’s a link.

Use data tables

Use tables with column headings to display data. Don’t use tables to make cosmetic changes to the layout of the document.
