Questions for presenters:

1 I work in education and have a difficult time with teachers understanding the "why" of creating accessible documents/web pages for their learners. Are there specific cases within K12 and Adult Education (not colleges or universities as they have far more monetary resources to deal with accessibility) that can highlight the "why" accessibility is important? I often get "I don't have those students in my class." We deal with adults, they don't have to disclose a disability, but they could benefit from accessible resources. Or, creating accessible documents (slideshows, web pages) just takes too much time. I'm looking for hammers and feathers to help guide my teachers to a practice of creating/providing accessible documents, and equitable learning opportunities for ALL.
