Testing and Remediation

 There are a number of tools that make it easier to evaluate the accessibility of a document, including tools found on Microsoft and Adobe products. However, these tools most of the time require for manual checks to review the reading order, tags, headings, lists, table headers and provide alternative text for images. 

We do a manual review of the issues to be found within your documents and do not rely solemnly on web based tools or any auditing tool. We use the Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat DC Checkers, and provide manual reviews by using  a Screen Reader, such as NVDA and correcting any issues found. Please see below on the following services we provide.

Additional Tools Used For Evaluation
