Following it does not ensure it usable by everyone. @cldbrand thank you. I was familiar with the study but this is a great summary.Tomorrow I'll speaking at the London Accessibility Meetup about making a website as big as GOV.UK accessible https://t.co/artlBrF7Mh"Save as PDF" in Word 2016 for Mac now generates a tagged PDF!
