Hi all,

I've not heard do this doctype before but we had a publisher who offered to provide us with a book in this format for a student with blindness.

Based on what the publisher said, DocLD provides a more robust description of any imagery including charts and graphs.

Do any of you have experience with this doctype? Do you know what tools can access it?
