Hi,

I work for Sausage Interactive, an Internet firm in Australia. We have a
client who wishes to put an Annual Report on their AAA website. The report
is quite long and in PDF format.

I am aware that PDFs are not accessible, however is it possible to have the
Report downloadable as a PDF if there are also contact details available
(such as an email address and/or phone number)? Thus people who cannot
download the PDF can access it some other way- ie. by mail etc. I believe
this would be A and possibly AA level accessible, but am unsure whether it
fulfills the AAA standard.

Secondly, I was wondering if you intend on upgrading the May 1999 W3C
checklist as you have done the guidelines?

Thanks for your help,

Gian
