Documents

 The document must pass our examination to be uploaded to our CMS for use on our website. 

  • All documents MUST be accessible.
  • It is your responsibility to make them accessible.
  • Documents need to be PDF with few exceptions.
  • Trained Web Content Editors will visually check the document tags and document flow and use the Adobe PDF Accessibility checker. Passing the checker alone does not ensure accessibility. If the document is not PDF, we will use the applicable checker. The document must pass our examination or we will reject it.
  • Linking to a document that is hosted in another website or cloud storage, such as Google Drive, does not change the requirement for accessibility and links to documents outside our CMS that are not accessible will be removed.
  • Find out how to make documents accessible at Accessibility Center Resources.
