MarketAccess has extensive experience converting PDF, Word, WordPerfect documents, and various other document types to HTML that are compliant with Treasury Board's Common Look & Feel (CLF) 2.0 guidelines, accessibility issues, and W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
In addition, MarketAccess can convert various document types to PDF and other document conversion services.
MarketAccess follows a proven methodology using the most current tools to complete document conversions on time and within budget. We review all converted documents thoroughly to ensure they mirror the original documents.
We have converted tens of thousands of pages of content to accessible HTML. No project is too big or too small. From 10 to several thousand pages, MarketAccess can convert your content and ensure the project is on time, meeting all applicable standards, and accessible to all users.
And our quality assurance practices can save you money. Recently, we completed HTML conversion for a Government client. During our Q&A, we found errors in the French and brought them to the attention of the client. Fortunately, they had not sent out the files to their printer and they were able to modify before making a costly print mistake.
We provide solutions that enable organizations to quickly and simply convert documents intended for print, such as PDF or Word, into structured, accessible HTML documents. Our semi-automated end-to-end process offers the most cost effective, high quality, solution available.
Web accessibility legislation around the world is putting growing pressure on both the Public and Private sectors to convert inaccessible PDF documents, and there is a growing desire among these organizations for more usable websites.
Automating the conversion and delivery of content, combined with the services of staff highly skilled in delivering and testing accessibility enables us to deliver a high quality service at a low cost, and differentiates Riverdocs from the rest of its competitors.
It is strongly recommended that you design for accessibility as much as possible in your documents and select publishing tools that support accessibility features.
While there are tools that allow you to modify a Tagged (accessible) PDF structure, they are currently time-consuming to use. Fixing a document’s Tagged PDF can take anywhere from half an hour to an entire day, depending on the magnitude of accessibility problems that are found. In addition, it is not possible to save and reapply your fixes to a document’s Tagged PDF on the next revision of the document. For example, you put in 4 hours of work fixing the Tagged PDF structure of a document. Three months later, you finish an update to that same document. You will have to redo the fixes on the revised document. Your goal is to minimize the amount of post-PDF processing that you need to do on each document.
MarketAccess provides services to the Federal Government to ensure that conversion from source documents to Accessible PDF formats are compliant with Treasury Board Guilelines.
