Not everyone has the ability to read and understand the content of an electronic document with ease, or to listen to a presentation that includes narration without some sort of aid. 15% of the world’s population lives with some form of disability. In the future, that number will only grow. An accessible document is created to be as easily readable and understood by a sighted reader as a low vision or non-sighted reader.
