Accessible Lists

Lists are an important way to convey information. Sighted users can easily see when a list begins and can distinguish between each list item. In order to make your lists accessible to those with visual impairments, simply use the list styles. These styles provide cues to users of assistive technology about the beginnings of a list and the movement from one list item to the next. 

In Microsoft Word, the list styles are found on the Home Tab. Most rich text editors also provide list style options that look the same. There are options for both ordered and unordered list styles.
