Accessible and inclusive documents: The basics

Catina's picture

This guidance is based on the simple principle that: You want people to access your provision and read your information and ‘people’ include deaf and disabled people and all we want to do with these guidelines is help you produce more accessible and inclusive documents.

We've draw on published accessibility good practice –where it helps. And (because of the sector’s role in adult literacy and numeracy) we have added some readability good practice.

Governments are now legislating to ensure that everyone can access information simpler, clearer, faster. If you are in any doubt take a look at how much attention is now paid to accessibility on the government website.

The guidelines are designed to be used by ELMAG commissioned providers delivering leadership, management and governance CPDdefinition opportunities but of course they will be useful for anyone who wants to make their documents more accessible.
