Hello,
I would be especially grateful if you might send me a URL or two of your favorite method for representing the download of different document types on a web page. As a developer, this might be your preferred way of coding for the presentation of document downloads, or as a user of a screen reader, this might be a site that you feel presents documents for download in the best way.

A site that I am working on has no less than 10 ways of presenting documents for download. Some are accessible, others not. I can understand the logic behind some of them, but the content creators knew nothing about accessibility. So now I am trying to come up with a standard way (or a few ways) to represent docs-for-download on our site.

I am particularly looking for complex presentations - for example reports that might have the same title, but available for many individual years.

Thank you in advance,
