Accessible Documents Enrich Online National Archives

Thanks to an intern who happens to be visually impaired, the online national archives now features a copy of the Americans with Disabilities Act and other key laws, as well as artifacts such as a letter written by Helen Keller to President Herbert Hoover. This means that important legislation and interesting historical documents related to people with disabilities is now available in one place, in an accessible, online format.

Here is the article about the intern, Sierra Gregg, and her contribution to the project:
