The text in this PDF file is mostly accessible for people using screen reading software. However, images do not use alternative text descriptions for people who cannot see. Most images come with a caption that provides the most important information. One graph on page 46 shows an inverted pyramid. The broad base is labeled, “Most news worthy information: who? what? where? why? how?”. The middle layer says “important details”. The pointed tip of the pyramid says “Other general information, background information”.
