H. Computer Diskettes

Possible Purposes Include:

Distribution of the template or large print version.

Access for clients who have no email or web access.

Portable electronic storage in the form of CDs, DVDs, Zip disks, traditional floppy diskettes and other methods, is necessary to deliver computer files to clients that do not have web or email access.

Many people do not have web or email access for affordability reasons or their particular disability prevents them from being able to use these services.

It is important, therefore, to make diskette and CD formats available as options for information delivery.
