  • Desktop: Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Safari, Windows Speech Recognition, NaturalReader, VoiceOver, keyboard-only navigation

Improving accessibility

This website is mostly compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 AA standard.

Problem: not all PDF documents are fully accessible to screen reader software
What we’re doing about it: We’re reformatting pdfs to make them accessible where possible, and educating content creators to help ensure newly created resources are fully accessible.

Please let us know if you have a suggestion regarding how we could improve accessibility.
