I'm working on a web application that allows users to digitally sign financial documents.

I need to make this accessible for people with visual disabilities but I cant' find good information for this. Are there standard solutions to this problem or existing documentation?

I think I probably need to present the document in a textual form for a screen reader and somehow convey what the user is signing each time a signature needs to be made.

Here is an article from DocuSign describing their solution: DocuSign for the blind and visually impaired: A guide to the Accessibility Support Feature

The accessibility support feature allows screen readers to provide an audio version of the documents in an envelope and the DocuSign tags.

Here is a video showing how it works: Swim For Sight Uses DocuSign to Register Participants

  • These links are both dead. Is this information in a new place or is there a way to answer this in a way that's not subject to link rot?
