Hi everyone!

While looking through an open source textbook website, I noticed that they
have a pdf file labeled as accessible, but when I opened it - there is a
lot of scanned text with no alt text listed; the reading order is
incorrect; etc...

The file didn't appear to be created by the website itself, but a third
party. Is it considered rude to let them know? Due to the inaccessibility
of their file, my school has opted to remediate our versions, with
permission of the website. Should we share the remediated files with them
once finished, in the spirit of open source resource sharing?

Any input would be appreciated!

Thank you so much,
