Writing Equivalent Text Descriptions (EqTDs) Posterette

This short 2-page document provides the essential "bare-bones" of what needs to be included in an equivalent text description (EqTD) and where the EqTD should be placed in a document. Whenever you create a document, whether it is electronic or paper, any non-text based element (e.g., picture, graph, "eye-candy") is not accessible to many individuals, so EqTDs should be provided.

I think this is a really usefull resource. I like the way it differentiates between accessibility and usability info and what is basic and what is essential.

I have been using this for my class presentations and it has been very helpful to make sure that there are text descriptions of images.
