Word: Descriptive Hyperlinks
Creating descriptive hyperlinks in Microsoft Word can help make them more accessible/descriptive to people using a screen reader. Typically, when a screen reader encounters a hyperlink (such as http://www.plu.edu) in a Word document, the text may be read out letter-by-letter, which can be confusing to those using screen readers. You can change the display text for a hyperlink so it's more meaningful to everyone.
Open the 'Insert Hyperlink' dialog box1. Copy the hyperlink you want to include in your text (for example, http://www.plu.edu).
2. In Word, place your cursor where you want the hyperlink to appear.
3. Open the Insert Hyperlink dialog box by pressing Ctrl+K on your keyboard or using the ribbon (See instructions above)
4. In the Address: field, paste the hyperlink you copied as part of step 1.
5. In the Text to display: field, type the text you want to use to represent the link.
6. Click OK to finish adding the link.
