accessr: Command Line Tools to Produce Accessible Documents using 'R Markdown'

Provides functions to produce accessible 'HTML' slides, 'HTML', 'Word' and 'PDF' documents from input 'R markdown' files. Accessible 'PDF' files are produced only on a 'Windows' Operating System. One aspect of accessibility is providing a headings structure that is recognised by a screen reader, providing a navigational tool for a blind or partially-sighted person. A key aim is to produce documents of different formats easily from each of a collection of 'R markdown' source files. Input 'R markdown' files are rendered using the render() function from the 'rmarkdown' package <>. A 'zip' file containing multiple output files can be produced from one function call. A user-supplied template 'Word' document can be used to determine the formatting of an output 'Word' document. Accessible 'PDF' files are produced from 'Word' documents using 'OfficeToPDF' <>. A convenience function, install_otp() is provided to install this software. The option to print 'HTML' output to (non-accessible) 'PDF' files is also available.
