Label the topic for level of information. This gives specific information for people designing their webpage, but the first half is very technical.
I would make a different page which is an introduction with the overview and move the technical info to another page.

The intended audience for this sheet is not clear in the main website description or within the website.

Provides good technical information, but the key factor is "techincal" information. This is not designed for the average reader who is wondering about accessibility. I did like that it stressed the idea that designing accessible websites should not compromise the information or the aesthetics of the level of difficulty of the website, it just changes the interface and the way users access it.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
