People with disabilities cannot use the application effectively if they do not have access to the required manuals and help files. Of particular importance is keyboard navigation, since this is the only way many users can navigate the application.

  • Provide all documentation in an accessible format. ASCII text and HTML are both excellent formats for assistive technologies.
  • Provide alternative text descriptions for all graphics in the documentation.
  • Document all your application's accessibility features. Keyboard navigation and shortcuts are particularly important to document. Include an accessibility section in your documentation, where information on all the accessibility features can be found.
