Our website provides access to a wealth of diverse resources that are designed to support both strategy and practice across the education, training and skills sectors. A unique feature of our materials is that they focus on making mainstream practices more inclusive.
Introduction to accessibility and inclusion
This section provides background information including definitions and legislation.
This set of resources explores the built-in features that allow users to personalise their machines and customise the way in which they interact with them.
Accessible documents and presentations
In this area we show you how to ensure your Word documents, PDFs and PowerPoint presentations are as accessible as possible.
Here we explore how to make your website accessible for a wide range of users. We also take a look at usability, standards, guideline and accessibility statements.
It is important to consider accessibility when designing assessments so that people with disabilities are not being unintentionally disadvantaged.
Delivering accessible digital learning
These materials will take you through some of the techniques involved in creating or adapting digital content to provide more accessible learning experiences.
Assistive technology in learning and teaching
Here we explore the assistive technologies that are built into computers as well as free and open source technologies. We also look at how mobile and portable devices can support learners with disabilities.
Older tools and resources
Here you will find a collection of older but still very valuable resources and tools including:
- Accessibility Passport
- Online Accessibility Self Evaluation Service (OASES)

We actively encourage organisations to incorporate our resources into their own training materials and simply ask that you acknowledge Jisc TechDis as the original source.

We have a small number of leaflets that have been designed specifically for you to download and print.
