We applaud your effort to create documents for everyone!

Equality, for all, means that all marketing materials available in print must be accessible in alternative and accessible formats. Here are some items that you can expect to provide in accessible formats:

  • Brochures
  • Contracts, Applications, and Agreements
  • Forms (Online & Physical)
  • Contracts, Applications, and Agreements
  • Fliers and White Papers
  • Statements and Notices
  • User Guide and Directories

Did you know remediating documents in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and InDesign provides a less than ideal experience for your end-users? To ensure accessibility and compliance, we always recommend converting all formats to an accessible PDF.

Accessible Documents

Accessibility is a serious business. It’s important to be serious about accessibility when you’re the provider of accessible formats for the largest banks in North America, federal government agencies, and healthcare/insurance companies.

There are components that must be addressed in every public-facing PDF document. The categories include:

  1. general layout and formatting requirements,
  2. accessibility tagging and reading order,
  3. document images requirement,
  4. and lists and tables and form fields.

Certification is available for documents that have been assessed and remediated to meet Section 508 compliance standards by the Braille Works Accessibility Team.

Laws Governing Accessible Formats

When you provide accessible documents, you’re complying with the law. While increasing your market reach is a financial benefit to your organization, you are also complying with local, state, and federal laws.

ADA
Title III of the ADA
Section 508
Effective Communication Rule
WCAG

We make it a point to follow the proposed legislation and ramp up for new and amended laws.

Fun Fact: We produced WCAG 2.1 AA documents before it became the industry standard. How is that for staying ahead of the curve?
