SharePoint has changed a lot over the last year, including an option for using "Modern Pages." The presenter will discuss answers to questions such as:

  • What are the best practices in designing SharePoint sites that are usable by all employees?
  • What are common issues that prevent employees from using SharePoint, or using it well?
  • How do I know what type of page I am looking at: modern, classic, on premises?
  • How do I set up a new page using the most accessible modern stuff?
  • Why would I choose to use modern pages and libraries over classic when I have a choice?
  • How can I test the accessibility of my SharePoint site?
Everyone has a role in SharePoint accessibility including those that set up the site, contribute content, and collaborate on documents. Learn what you can do to make your SharePoint site more accessible.


  • Participants will be able to determine (with assistance of their IT team) which version of SharePoint they have, for the purpose of understanding how this impacts the accessibility of their site.
  • Participants will be able to identify 5 types of digital elements present in their SharePoint sites that should be tested for accessibility.
  • Participants will be able to list 3 different accessibility tests that can be run on SharePoint content to assess the accessibility of digital content.
