Accessible Formats - What Are They?

The MyDocStore concept is a solution for synchronising and transferring accessible file formats across a variety of platforms, including smart phones, mobile devices and tablets. But what are accessible formats and why do we need to worry about them?

For those who find it difficult to read because of a learning difficulty such as dyslexia or visual impairment, converting printed or electronic text into an accessible format can provide the answer. Acessible documents enable users to personailise the format of the text to suite their needs such as:

• documents with large fonts

• audio versions of documents or books, usually as MP3 files

• talking e-books

• braille documents

The MyDocStore project aims not only to improve the process for creating accessible formats but also to automate and distribute documents to personal devices.
