The Guidelines for Accessible Information have been developed by the ICT for Information Accessibility in Learning (ICT4IAL) project, which is a multi-disciplinary network of European and international partners that represent both learning and ICT communities.
The Guidelines for Accessible Information are an open educational resource to support the creation of accessible information in general and for learning in particular. The Guidelines do not aim to contain all available information on accessibility or cover every aspect of the field, but to summarise and link to existing and useful resources which can be helpful for non-information and communications technologies experts.
The purpose of developing such Guidelines is to support the work of practitioners and organisations working in the field of education to provide accessible information to learners who require and will benefit from more accessible information. The procedure for creating accessible information is universal. Therefore, these Guidelines support all individuals or organisations wishing to create information that is accessible in different formats.

The Guidelines are available below for download in PDF and Word formats. In addition to all the official Agency languages, the publication is available here in Arabic, Chinese and Russian.
