Universal Accessibility is our Goal

Document accessibility can be complicated. Making sure an accessible document is actually usable by those with vision or cognitive disabilities can be even more complex. You need a trusted partner to help you navigate the sea of document accessibility requirements and regulations.

Open Access Technologies (OAT) understands there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to making a digital document accessible and usable for everyone. You can trust the OAT team to ensure your entire document library serves the needs of your customers while ensuring compliance with WCAG 2.1, PDF/UA, Section 508 and other state and federal standards.

Document Remediation

OAT’s intelligent software solution is uniquely designed to add essential accessibility features to all kinds of documents, from PDF, to ePub, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more. Using machine learning with proprietary accessibility detection algorithms, our software quickly and accurately scans each document to find, repair and embed missing accessibility features.

Our remediation services include:

  • Verification that all document metadata is included and correctly formatted
  • Proper tagging for accurate navigation by adaptive devices
  • Creation of clear, descriptive alt text for graphics, tables, charts, and images written by highly skilled subject-matter-experts
  • Repair of broken, missing or inappropriately formatted links
  • Correct accessible formatting of tables, charts and forms
  • Easy-to-understand accessibility validation report for every document

Assessment of compliance vulnerability

How many PDFs are available to customers to download from your website today? More to the point, how many of them comply with the applicable accessibility guidelines including WCAG 2.1, PDF/UA and Section 508? You can’t afford to ignore these legacy PDFs. Just one complaint about a non-compliant document could lead to a lawsuit, fines and more.

Let’s work together to inventory your entire PDF document library. Our software will locate and examine your online documents to check for compliance vulnerabilities. You’ll get a detailed assessment of the accessibility compliance status of each digital document available to your customers. Knowing where you stand today will allow you to prioritize your remediation efforts and minimize your risk. 

Tracking and Reporting

Large-volume document accessibility remediation is our specialty. That’s why our platform includes tools to help you manage your documents throughout the remediation process.

Our intuitive dashboard can be customized to provide the information you need to track the status of each individual document or all your document remediation projects. Accessibility validation reports are also stored in the platform for easy access to verify compliance to the applicable standards.

Accessibility Validation Services

If you are using in-house, or other resources, to make your PDFs or other documents accessible, you could be missing some important elements necessary to comply with all the relevant requirements. OAT can help.

OAT’s proprietary intelligent software will quickly scan your documents to verify and validate that your document accessibility efforts meet the compliance standards for your industry. We will also provide you with a validation report for each document. If accessibility compliance issues are uncovered, we will work with you to provide the remediation services you need.
