As a result, organizations have been asked to also provide their electronic content in alternative formats such as Braille, Plain Text, MicrosoftÂ® Office Suite formats and HTML.
The downside of providing any of these alternate formats for content providers is the lack of content integrity, branding and security. Furthermore, the costs associated with providing subsequent versions add incrementally to the production and distribution costs. From the perspective of adaptive technology users, the downside of these formats is that content is typically not optimized for accurate access or navigation which results in content being heard out of order or without the navigation experience needed to understand the content, afforded to visual users.
