> More Background:
> ================
> 
> While information about how to create accessible office documents does
> currently exist on a range of web sites, the information is often
> incomplete, vendor-biased or is specific to a single office application.
> Governments, public sector organizations, service organization and
> entities globally, wishing to comply to accessibility requirements, have
> expressed the need for centralized guidelines for creating accessible
> office documents.
> 
> Leveraging the W3C-WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and
> Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 1.0, ADOD defines a
> harmonized framework for determining the accessibility of office
> documents, office document formats and office applications. In addition,
> and perhaps more importantly, ADOD includes a set of practical,
> application-specific but vendor-neutral instructions on how to author
> accessible documents in common document formats and document authoring
> tools.
