Document Accessibility

Centre for Inclusive Design offers document accessibility solutions to evaluate and create accessible documents for use in your business. Our team ensures these documents adhere to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 or WCAG 2.1 level. We can perform accessibility solutions on:

  • Microsoft Word documents
  • PDF (generated from Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign)
  • Microsoft Powerpoint presentations
  • Microsoft Excel spreadsheets

Our process includes a mixture of tools and ensures compliance by:

  • Using automated tools to identify issues and then fix them
  • Correct tagging and order
  • Reading order
  • Document properties and bookmarks
  • Heading structure
  • Appropriate short and long text alternatives for images
  • Table structure and text alternatives
  • Appropriate link text
  • Form accessibility

Document accessibility is an essential process for creating documents that not only can reach the widest range of people but also assists in creating documents with proper hierarchies. This means that your documents are labelled, concise and easily navigatable for any type of person. We know how tedious good document creation can be, so let us do the heavy lifting and create something truly accessible.
