Have you ever thought about making your documents accessible?
There is no doubt that all people should have access to your website. If you want to reach that goal, the first step is to ensure that your online documents are accessible for people with visual impairments.
When making your online documents accessible, you create a happier life and better workdays for 28% more people. Web accessibility is the right thing to do. Not just morally, but also legally.
In some countries, web accessibility is a legal requirement. Since 2018, The European Web Accessibility Directive has aimed to give people with lowered vision better access to public services, websites and mobile applications. The directive imposes several requirements on online documents, and for many companies this results in a more resource-intensive process when creating PDF files for their website. Among other things, the visually impaired must be able to access files and have them read aloud using a screen reader.

Accessibility Assistant ensures that you can be confident that your online documents are accessible to the visually impaired as the directive prescribes. You can continue to work as you know in both PowerPoint and Word. The solutions allow all users to create accessible PDF files, optimizing accessibility directly in the document. Among other things, certain types of information are moved to the right places and image texts are optimized.
