The use of styles to create headings and lists in Microsoft Word can benefit people with cognitive disabilities by making the content easier to scan and by allowing you to split long documents into smaller segments. Headings can also be converted to bookmarks when you export your PDF document from Microsoft Word. These bookmarks can provide additional navigation to people who rely on a screen reader to access the PDF document.
By aligning form elements and their labels, you can make a form easier to understand for people with cognitive disabilities. The use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for layout is a best practice in modern web design. In this tutorial, you will learn how to improve form usability by using only CSS to align form elements and labels.
Most screen readers support a keyboard shortcut for navigating the content on a web page using headings. This feature can provide additional navigation for people with visual impairments who use screen readers to browse the web. Headings also separate the content on a web page into more manageable sections for people with cognitive disabilities.
