Greetings fellow writers,
I have been tasked with investigating what I need to do to ensure our technical documentation complies with the Accessibility for People with Disabilities Act (specifically in Ontario).
Does anyone have any experience with this sort of legislation? How much effort do you have to put in to ensure compliance? I work in a high tech field with some very long complicated documents that would be time consuming, as well as expensive, to reproduce in other formats.
The only thing I do at the moment is take into account the use of colour and colour blindness issues.
Any experiences, thoughts or ideas would be most welcome.
