At the Boston Disabilities Commission we suggest asking yourself the questions - what is the point we're trying to get across with this image? And if I were listening to a news story on the radio, what would I want the reporter to tell me about this image so that I understand the story?
Andrea Patton

It's a google doc with questions about basic access. It's meant as a self-assessment on their part, and a basic "inventory" on your part, so you have basic accessibility info of your member organizations.
