Welcome to the world of accessibility!
If you're wondering what we mean by that, please take a look at the WebAim accessibilty overview. Our official stance is below, but in the meantime, here are the practical points.
How we can help you:
Re-tag PDFs for ease of reading: We have made every effort to ensure that our image-based PDF files are accessible and can be read with screen readers like JAWS. These files are tagged for the JSTOR website using an automated process. In the event that a PDF is not tagged to your specifications, we can perform manual tagging for you.
Send you accessible versions of articles that you can't read: We are also happy to re-format PDFs that are unreadable via screen reader. If this is a service you need, please contact JSTOR Support with your request directly. Please include the citations for the articles you need tagged.
Talk or write you through any aspect of the website that you find difficult: Call, text or write us if you need help.
