Learn to use Microsoft Excel’s accessibility checker toolsIn MS Excel, creating accessible documents is largely a matter of using the built-in tools and features as intended. When using Excel keep in mind that a user of assistive technology is going to be navigating by cell, therefore it's important to ensure your sheet begins using the 'A1 cell' so that they can immediately begin accessing the content.
