make documents accessible right from the start.
We have a different philosophy: make documents accessible right from the start.
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.
- Broaden your publishing technologies.
