Increase the visibility of Accessibility Checker violations

This policy setting controls whether a document, workbook, or spreadsheet with accessibility errors will cause a loud warning or error slab in the user interface.

If you enable this policy setting, you may specify what happens when a document, workbook, or spreadsheet has accessibility errors:

- Accessibility violations do not change Prepare for Distribution loudness (default)
- Accessibility errors cause the Prepare for Distribution slab to be loud
- Accessibility errors or warnings cause the Prepare for Distribution slab to be loud

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the Accessibility Checker UI will be presented in its normal state.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
