Another ribbon-cutting for Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2019!
Once again, we’re celebrating GAAD by releasing a new version of the Berman Accessibility Ribbon for Word. Last year, we asked you to vote on the language we should translate the ribbon to next. Based on the results of that survey, we present to you… the Berman Accessibility Ribbon for Word in Danish! And so Danish joins English, French, and Simplified Chinese already in our collection. And we plan to be releasing two more languages later this GAAD Month!
If you’re already using our ribbon, I hope you’re finding it useful: you can update to the latest English Accessibility Ribbon for Word by following the ribbon installation instructions.
New to the ribbon? In Microsoft Word, a ribbon is a bar that organizes Word’s features into a series of tabs at the top of a document. We’ve created one, called the Berman Accessibility Ribbon, that helps make your documents accessible. It’s an add-on to Microsoft Word for Windows (versions 2010, 2013, and 2016, 2019, and 365).
Install the Berman Accessibility Ribbon into your Microsoft Word to make it easier to create and maintain accessible Word files that benefit everyone. The ribbon will help you create documents that are accessible for everyone and that comply with W3C’s WCAG 2.0 and 2.1 criteria, as well as PDF/UA (these are the criteria that regulations such as ADA, Revised Section 508, EU’s Web Accessibility Directive, and AODA point to).
And today is our ribbon-cutting launch of the Danish Accessibility Ribbon for Word.
The add-ons are free donationware: if you choose to donate, you’ll be supporting accessibility initiatives (the Danish ribbon supports Carleton University’s READ Initiative). Many thanks to Emil Jonathan Wittendorff from Diversa in Copenhagen, for their help with the Danish ribbon!
And we’ll be releasing ribbons in Arabic and Hebrew soon!
