Do you create documents in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Adobe Pro DC? Do you scan documents? Please read this news flash.
If you create Word and Excel documents or use a copier/scanner to create PDFs, this information is for you to review. You may create items that are later uploaded to the agenda processing software or posted on the public website. Even if you are not a web contributor, your documents may be posted to the website or be part of an agenda item. Documents from outside entities that become part of the agenda must also be compliant with ADA standards.
Assistive technology (AT) is used by individuals to help them understand electronic information. For example, screen readers or text-to-speech software is one tool available and assists individuals who are blind, have low vision, or a learning disability. This technology interprets words on the page and translates them to a computerized voice that reads the information. Accessible documents work in partnership with assistive technology to ensure individuals with disabilities have access to information.
