Accessible Print Design

"Accessible Print" guidelines would be different than accessible 
electronic documents, and different from accessible web content, the 
latter two being digital (also known as electronic) and able to be 
rendered and printed by the browser in ways that the user chooses, while 
printed documents (e.g. materials) are just that, printed.  Once printed, 
the user has few choices in transforming the content.  CCTV and other 
assistive technologies do not change the printed materials. 

Are you working on guidelines for accessible electronic documents that can 
be printed, where the user as access to the electronic document, as 
opposed to accessible print guidelines, where the user only has the 
printed document?

Subject:        Print Accessibility ... from Web Accessibility

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a Print Accessibility Guidelines, based (from a part) on 
the WCAG...

Here you can find my draft documents (many hours of works and researches, 
case studies, etc.) :


There is 3 parts (+ introduction) :
Web from print
contextual printing (sorry, difficult for me to translate in english, it's 
all the environnement of printing... using, paper, etc.)
Some people are interested to work with me on this ?
I search also people to translate in English...

all documents are in french...
one part left for this time because not really finish (contextual 
I will put another files after (ressources, documents, etc.)

Please, can you give me your feedback ? about this initiative, about print 
accessibility, about ... as you want !

I'm so impress by work and involvement of US people in and on 
accessibility... we don't have this in France... so, I'm sure you will 
be sensitized of this important project, because accessibility is not only 
on the web or in building constructions !

Bien  vous tous,
ps : I'm french living in France... with beautiful french accent when I 
speak english ;-)
