Facebook and Twitter small print is too hard to understand, say MPs

Quotation marks
Quotation marks, also called quotes, quote marks, quotemarks, speech marks and inverted commas, are punctuation marks used in pairs in various writing systems to set off direct speech, a quotation, or a phrase. The pair consists of an opening quotation mark and a closing quotation mark, which may or may not be the same character.

In a recent thread on the Web Standards Group mailing list, the question arose about whether Screen Readers support semantic HTML elements such as strong and em. The short answer for the two main screen readers JAWS and Window Eyes is no. Neither do they support i or b for that matter.

PDFs and accessibility
As the Web evolves, new software and applications for use on Websites are being developed. Many of these new applications are proprietary products that don’t use standard features recognised by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The use of non-standard formats can cause significant accessibility problems for some people.
