Very technical article. Did provide useful information for generating handouts or text for people who have reading or acuity or vision issues. The whole website is a great resource for information related to blind and low vision.

A very in-depth article pertaining to reading, text size, and color issues for those who have reading and vision issues. For someone interested in that field, there is a lot of useful information provided. I could see how this might useful in creating websites and reading materials.

New information and communications technologies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but only if such technologies are designed from the beginning so that everyone can use them. Given the explosive growth in the use of the World Wide Web for publishing, electronic commerce, lifelong learning and the delivery of government services, it is vital that the Web be accessible to everyone.
