Learn how to create whiteboards that everyone can easily work with and understand.

  • Make sure to add alt text when you insert an image or document. Select the image and then Edit alt text. Write a brief sentence or two describing the image.

  • It's also helpful to add alt text when using shapes or lines to explain meaning. For example, if you are using a flow chart or writing a physics problem.

  • Make sure that there is high contrast between text and background color. For example, use black text on a white background or light text on a black background. 

    • To change a whiteboard's background, select Settings and then Format Background

    • To change text color, select the text box and select Text color picker from the Context menu.

  • Using text boxes, shapes, or sticky notes are more accessible for screen readers than using ink for handwriting and diagrams.

  • If you are using an animated GIF, please include alt text.
