Accessible PDFs ensure that information is accessible for everyone, something which The Equality Act 2010 states is required from businesses and organisations.
Regular PDFs can often be problematic for assistive technology users as they are essentially scanned images.
Connect can provide fully interactive PDFs, ensuring that your information meets the required standards and can be accessed by all end users. Our specialists ensure that our documents or forms in PDF format are properly tagged and well-structured using heading levels, paragraphs, tables, lists and figures to provide the correct reading order. We can also add bookmarks and links to any document to make navigation easier.
If you would like us to create to amend a PDF, you can purchase this in our online shop.
We guarantee that PDF/UA accessibility standards and requirements are being met.
To quality assure our documents we use JAWS (Job Access With Speech) and NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access).
Alternative Text Suggestions
If the PDF file contains an image then alternative text is needed to communicate information which would ordinarily be inaccessible. Alternative text suggestions can be made for any images to ensure that the file satisfies Text To Speech or Screen Reader requirements.
Form fields are designed to be electronically fillable by the end user and can be embedded in a document with usage instructions. This allows users to input information as required.
