Create it.
Write it.
Design it.
And make it accessible.

Technologists for Accessible Design + Publishing

We have a different philosophy: make documents accessible right from the start.

We teach how to use Word, PowerPoint, Adobe InDesign — everyday software without any special add-ons — to create accessible documents that need little remediation to become fully compliant with Sec. 508, AODA, HHS, PDF/UA, WCAG, and other regulations and accessibility standards.

Born accessible. It just makes sense.

We teach. So you can do.
