* While every attempt has been made to comply with W3C accessibility priority 1 guidelines, 2003, some alternative text descriptions for multimedia interactions are not available, as these competencies were written prior to accessibility concerns being a requirement in their development.

The term 'accessibility' refers broadly to making web content accessible to people with disabilities and additionally to the assistive technologies that enhance their experience. Some examples of assistive technologies are specially designed keyboards, screen reader software and Braille displays to name just a few.

More information on accessibility and assistive technologies can be found at www.w3.org.
