I recently received an email from an acquaintance:
I would love to talk with you about ways of making accessible documents using a Mac.
…in partnership with the Blind and Low Vision Education Network, and local and central government, [we have] embarked on a project called Secondary Sight, whose long-term goal is an online, personalised education system which is equitable for all. Part of this journey is a project which will see tutorials for teachers on how to create accessible documents for their students.
I replied that unfortunately I was unable to help — I really don’t have any expertise in making documents accessible The web’s another matter — I have quite a few clues there.
Some Googling didn’t really help locate any experts either.
If you do this kind of work, or know how to locate someone who does, please leave a comment on this post. Although my acquaintance is in New Zealand, I’m sure this expertise could be sourced from anywhere.
