Learn how we can help

Technologists for Accessible Design + Publishing

We teach how to use Word, PowerPoint, Adobe InDesign — the usual software without any special add-ons — to create accessible documents that need little remediation to become fully compliant with Sec. 508 (USA), AODA (CA), EN 301 549 (EU), HHS, PDF/UA, WCAG, and other regulations and accessibility standards.

Born accessible. It just makes sense.

  • Reduce your production costs.
  • Reduce your time-to-publication.
  • Eliminate remediation costs.
  • Reach a wider audience.
  • Maximize use of multiple publishing technologies.
