Accessible HTML / PDF ConversionCreating accessible documents for over 15 years, we are ready to start work.
Extensive Experience Creating Accessible HTML and PDF Documents
MarketAccess has extensive experience converting PDF, Word, WordPerfect documents, and various other document types to accessible HTML and accessible PDF fully meeting Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These standards are demanded by Treasury Board Canada for our Government clients.
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.
Web accessibility legislation around the world is putting growing pressure on both the Public and Private sectors to convert inaccessible PDF documents to HTML accessible to all website visitors.
Over the last 15 years, 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 the files to their printer and they were able to modify before making a costly print mistake.
With years of experience creating accessible PDF documents, MarketAccess has the skills to ensure your PDF documents can be accessed by all users.
In many cases, we can work with the final PDF. That said, it is best to get us involved early in the process before the document is finalized. In these cases, we can review and advise on the structure, layout, use of colours, contrast, font attributes, etc. to facilitate conversion to accessible PDF.
