A great resource and very well designed. Provides good explanations of making print materials more accessible. The only thing I would improve is within the manual, make the actual tips (with the numbered region) text font larger/different or somehow distinguish it more from the other part of the text.

Great information and design, but it would be even better with an interactive table of contents/menu that would allow users to select the section they want to read specifically, without having to scroll through the whole thing.

"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."
