To check a document or presentation for accessibility, Microsoft 365 provides a built-in accessibility feature.

  • Click on Check Accessibility.

  • If there are accessibility issues, they will appear Accessibility pane to the right of your document window.

 

  • Click the issue to make available Recommended Actions for remediation.

 

 

NOTE: The Check Accessibility feature in the online version of Microsoft 365 is limited. While it can identify issues, it does not provide Recommended Actions. This feature is only available in the desktop version of Office 365.
