Mt. SAC email that contains pictures, graphics, videos or colored text must pass
ADA accessibility standards.
- Do not scan a flyer and attach it to an email without adding alternate text to the graphic image and making sure all verbiage in
the graphic is duplicated and available in text format within the body of the email.
- Do not add a link to a video that is not able to display captions.
- Do not attach or add a link to a PDF or other document that does not pass an accessibility scan.
Follow these procedures to make your email accessible.
Note: When creating a longer email, it is advisable to add structure and styling such
as headings, bulleted lists, and bold or Italic formatting, the same as you would
to make a Word document accessible.
Tip: Write your email using Microsoft Word first, style it, and then cut and paste it into your email before sending.
