Dear list members,

Has anyone given some thought to how best to create an accessible, web-based demonstration document that contains edits and annotations?

Examples that come to mind are online documents that graphically depict the requirements of different document formatting and style guides. The following MLA style support webpage contains a number of these pages:


Other types of demonstration documents could depict grammatical corrections, etc. If anyone is aware of an institution that is doing a good job in creating online annotated documents that work for both sighted and for screen reader users, I'd really appreciate if you could share some links.

Thanks very much,

Athol Gow
