Why do we need to make our content accessible?
To comply with the ADA, documents posted online must be screen-reader friendly. Screen-reader software is a form of assistive technology that reads a screen's display aloud to the user.
In addition, all multimedia resources must be captioned. Captioned media displays the audio content of a program as text on-screen, is synchronized with the dialogue of the speaker, and includes auditory information such as sound-effects. This provides accessibility for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, while also benefiting individuals with diverse learning abilities and whose primary language is not English.
