Day 7: Organize Documents with Headings

When you add headings to your document, you improve the navigation experience for people who use a screen reader because headings communicate how the content in a document has been organized. It also supports individuals who are neurodiverse and/or those with learning differences as headings enable them to easily find essential information and anticipate what else to expect in the document.

Check out these instructions to add headings in Microsoft Word:

  1. Highlight the text you want to use to make a heading.
  2. In the “Home” tab, look for the Style Gallery.
  3. Choose the heading style you want to use (H1, H2, H3, etc.) and ensure your heading is at least 2 points larger than the body text to help people differentiate headings and body text.
