Notice: Accessibility of APH Websites
The American Printing House for the Blind strives to make all APH web-based content accessible to users with disabilities by innovating interfaces and adhering to the standards set forth in WCAG 2.0 Level AA.
Accessibility refers to the concept that people with disabilities are able to independently access and use a product or system, including with the benefit of assistive technologies. Assistive technologies include adaptive hardware and/or software and other devices used to enable all individuals to use the interface no matter their abilities.
