Add a11y orientation for learners to the help center

Description

just asked the doc team if there's any orientation information for edX learners who use screen readers. Although we have a few articles about accessibility (a11y), we could use one that introduces edX format/layout and terminology to users of most screen readers.

For reference, some of the current a11y articles are listed below.

Completing mathematical problems using screen readers

Are courses accessible to learners with disabilities?

Will GFA courses be offering any accommodations for people with learning disabilities, especially during proctored exams?

Thanks , that makes sense - this came up with a learner asking if there were any general docs were available and I figured the Docs team would be the area that they would know. If it's usually documented inline that's good for me to know and I can reach out if we ever get more detailed questions.

, we typically try to document terminology within the context of relevant topics so that it's helpful to all learners. Do you have some specific orientation/terms in mind?
