Can you talk to me about accessibility in Microsoft Word?
Hi! There is an accessibility checker in MS Word that will check your document and show you how to fix your mistakes. It might be in a different location depending on your version but there will be a check accessibility button. Once you click that it runs a check and then a tab comes up on the right side that shows you your errors. You can click on your error and it will tell you why it's wrong and how to fix it.
Subject: Library and Information Science
Can you please help me find sources on Shakespeare?
Sure! First you want to go to your library databases. You can search that databases by subject so you will look for english databases. Then select one of them. Once in the selected database you will want to select your keywords. What information do you need? Do you need information on Shakespeare himself? Or do you need information on his plays? Take what you need and create keywords. For instance if you're doing a paper on Romeo and Juliet and the theme of family you might type in "Romeo and Juliet and Family" into your search box. You can use several different keywords and you might need to try several different searches. A search is like a puzzle but eventually you will find something that works and connects the pieces.
What is assistive technology?
Assistive technology is any technology that will help those who are disabled. Some examples include text to speech which is an audio reader that reads your text on the screen out loud, speech to text which allows users to speak and it is translated as text to your computer or screen magnification.
