Accessible PDF as a Service

Within budget and time frames

    Accessible PDF as a Service is for anyone who does not have the
    opportunity to create accessible PDF files on their own,
    but who nevertheless want PDF documents to comply with
    accessibility regulations and standards.

    Our services can regularly scan and crawl websites, internal networks,
    file systems, folders, files,... to locate existing document issues and
    compile an issue-report based on the findings.

    The report indicates the accessibility status of the PDF documents over time;
    including measures needed to remediate PDF documents for full PDF/UA compliance.

    The report can then be used as input for the accessibility work;
    such as an action plan, allocation of time for actions and resources, etc.

    Following the standards is the only way to reduce your liability and
    provide the most accessible versions of your PDF documents.

    The easiest way to determine if your PDF documents are 100% compliant
    is to ask NewFormat for a PDF document accessibility audit that proves
    compliance to the accessibility standard you have requested.

    • Structural

      • ISO 32000-1 and ISO 32000-2 (PDF)

    • Quality Assurance:
      Verification of PDF/UA conformance based on
      the Matterhorn Protocol's set of checks.

    • Resource Mapping / Audit Scanning:

    Accessibility Report

    accessibility report on the accessibility of its websites including PDF documents.
