The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires federal agencies to write "clear Government communication that the public can understand and use."
In most cases, files on the OER web site are provided in an accessible HTML web format (see Accessibility page). When other file formats are used (such as PDF, RTF, MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint or RealPlayer), postings are annotated with the corresponding file format and a link to this page is provided.
