"One of the most important changes that the new standard makes is its application on all types of web content, not only HTML documents. More than ever, the new accessibility guidelines for web content make all web documents on the internet susceptible for evaluation in terms of accessibility. Adobe PDF files, Microsoft Power Point presentations and Microsoft Word documents, the most common formats for Internet documents, must comply with the four accessibility principles: perceivable, operable, understandable and robust."

- Quoted from a good article that addresses this in more detail: https://www.upf.edu/hipertextnet/en/numero-7/wcag-2-0.html

Subject: [WebAIM] Reports products from web application



My web application can produce multiple reports depending on information chosen on the reports screen. These reports can be produced in PDF, XL, HTLM and other formats. To be have my web application accessible should the reports it produces be accessible also? If so how do I ensure that the reports are compliant?

Thanks for your help.
