This is a nice example of one of the many ways that you can use StoryMaps. From the Kentucky Geological Survey, it's their 2019-2020 Annual Report.

The post begins with a message by State Geologist Bill Haneberg saying:

"...we at KGS decided to change the look and delivery of our annual report. Printing and mailing a 50-ish-page full-color report cost us thousands of dollars each year and tied us to a static and timeworn format. We mailed hundreds of copies of our annual report to people on our mailing list each year but rarely knew if they were read or not. So we decided to do things differently.

This year, like so many other things in our lives, the KGS annual report is online in a format that allows links to supporting files, interactive graphics, and videos. Everyone on our annual report mailing list will receive a postcard with a scannable QR code that will bring up the annual report on desktop and mobile devices..."

A great idea that should be copied by others!

What is accessibility

Before we dive into what web accessibility means, let’s first understand whataccessibility in general means. Accessibility is the extent to which something is able to be accessed by everyone, regardless of their abilities or disabilities. Buildings, public transportation, web applications, or other things we use in our daily lives are accessible if everyone can use these things. For example, most public buildings have ramps or elevators in addition to stairs to provide access to wheelchairs, and many speeches by public figures have a sign language interpreter so people with hearing disabilities can access the spoken content. The end goal is to enable access to all possible things for people with disabilities, not only because it is required by law, but because it is right thing to do.
