If you haven't already done so, check out [LINK:
http://www.section508.gov/] www.section508.gov it is focused more to the
government procurement audience, but it has quite a number of very useful
resources on the law and compliance with it.

I am looking for links to documentation on common text reader limitations.
For example, if I create an alternative text description that is supposed
to
read a certain way, then I have to be careful that I write my descriptions
carefully (be mindful of spaces needed so things are pronounced correctly,
e.g., P O D vs. POD) so that a text reader will read it properly. I am
concerned with the actual writing of the text before it is converted to a
pdf.

Thanks.
