Title Accessibility is for Everyone: Key Concepts for Creating Accessibility Documents
Summary This document developed by the U.S. Development of Education to explain basic concepts that help make documents accessible. The majority of these concepts provide an underlying technical structure so that they can be used effectively by assistive technology. When you create an accessible document, you are using methods that make a document usable by individuals with any type of disability. These concepts come from Section 508 requirements.
