I will bet that answer is a resounding YES!
Did you know millions of people have Print Disabilities? Accessible documents provide access to readers with all types of disabilities, not just blindness or low vision - that is a common misunderstanding.
Here are some characteristics that can lead to a print disability:
- Vision Related, Blind, Low Vision, Color Blind, Perceptual
- Physical: Difficulty lifting, positioning, or holding books and paper and turning pages, navigating a document with fine motor issues
- Learning Disability/Dyslexia/Processing Issues
- Cognitive: Unable to read or to gain meaning from standard print materials
Microsoft Word has tools you can use to make sure they can read your documents and we can train you on how to use these. Once you take some initial steps and learn to use these tools, accessible documents will be so much easier.
I am about to turn 51 and I even struggle with this at times. 10,000 people turn 65 every day in the United States and I'm almost positive that your organization provides services to some of our older citizens. We convert your inaccessible documents so that all people can read them. This can be a daunting task for your team so, let us help you!
