Awesome! I think that is a wonderful idea and truthfully I believe you are the 
first I have heard about that has done something like this. I think it would 
be great if we could somehow implement this with our main documentation site, 
but of course that would be up to the maintainers, which I am hoping respond 
to this.

If this goes through, I see you being very busy, as we will want all docs done 
like this ;)  Anyways, if it does go through, that would make Ubuntu a 
definite champ when it comes to accessibility as I do not know of any other 
distros that do something like this.

Matt? Jordan? Corey?
