Creating Accessible Lists in MS Word

Why Use Lists?

Lists arrange and/or order content so the materials are more organized. Use the following types of lists:

  • Ordered (Numbered) – Used to convey a sequential process. An ordered list always uses numbers, letters, or roman numerals for each item.
  • Unordered (Bulleted) – Used to for emphasis, highlights or to focus attention. An unordered list contains a group of items or concepts and uses bullets.

Be sure to apply the list style to create formatted lists.
