Here are the PDF elements we make accessible:

We also add tagging in your PDF structure to enable them to work with assistive technologies, like screen readers. For instance, if there is a table in your document, we will tag each element of the table so that someone using a screen reader can easily navigate the table and understand the information. We also add a table header structure to define the scope of each header cell. Final deliveries are Section 508 compliant PDFs, along with accessibility reports.

WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE PDF’s ACCESSIBLE
One of the most extensively used digital formats worldwide, Portable Document Format (PDF) is compatible with a large number of documents and devices. PDFs are widely utilized and used for a variety of purposes, including guides, invoices, e-books, applications, statements, and more.
However, these PDFs are not accessible or readable to everyone. Users with vision impairments (or other disabilities) may not find them accessible or optimized for screen readers, for example. PDFs hosted on a website or any other digital media that are not accessible to all run the danger of accessibility-related lawsuits, according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Everyone needs to be aware of this law, but it is especially important for those in Government, healthcare, finance/banking, and education.
The process of fixing accessibility problems that make it difficult for people with disabilities to read, navigate, and interact with PDF files is known as PDF Remediation. All PDF files must comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0/2.1 to ensure that their content is accessible to everyone – even people who are visually impaired. Over a billion people around the globe experience some kind of disability, and it is now mandatory (in some countries) to provide them accessible PDFs. PDF Remediation & Accessibility is also required under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Section 508. Under this law, the PDF files must be checked to ensure that they can be accessed by impaired people. Both Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and section 508 PDF remediation require changes in PDF files that can’t be automated, such as adding tags, alt-text, etc. The most cost-effective way of making documents accessible is by outsourcing PDF Remediation Services.
