Document accessibility ensures your PDF content is universally understandable, navigable, and barrier-free, regardless of your readers’ abilities. A truly accessible PDF will work harmoniously with assistive technologies such as screen readers, screen magnifiers and text-to-speech software. Making PDFs accessible requires technical expertise, intentional formatting and awareness of accessibility laws, standards and guidelines.

Adding accessibility into documents promotes inclusivity, fulfills legal requirements, improves user experiences, and maximizes the reach and impact of information. It’s a fundamental element to building an accessible and equitable society where everyone has equal access to knowledge, information and opportunities.

PDFs are the preferred downloadable document type on most websites (sales sheets, e-books, applications, financial statements, etc.). As such, end users from all backgrounds, including people with disabilities, rely on them to get important content. PDF remediation helps this critical demographic have access to related content without barriers. It also helps your company meet compliance standards and provides equal access to all people, regardless of their abilities.
