ISCAP Document Accessibility

This website is designed to be accessible to users with disabilities and to be compatible with adaptive technology, including screen readers. The goal of the ISCAP Staff is to ensure the files comply with the Federal standards established by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

All files are produced using a current version of Adobe Acrobat (file conversion software for the Portable Document Format), which is the most accessible software now available. Unfortunately, even the most current file version may not work for all users, and the software may be unable to identify certain images, captions, and text for accessibility because of the poor condition of the source documents.

In addition, some of our documents may not be completely accessible. For example, documents can contain handwritten notes or be entirely handwritten, making accessibility for the visually impaired particularly challenging. The ISCAP staff will annotate handwritten documents in a manner that will identify them as handwritten to a screen reader program. If a user of the website needs an accessible version a handwritten document, that person may contact the ISCAP Staff, who will work with the requester. For assistance please contact the ISCAP Staff at 202-357-5250 or by email at
