    Communications and compliance specialists can rest assured
    that their PDFs are compliant with accessibility standards.

    With other verification products, it’s not uncommon that documents
    will pass the tests, but still not be accessible and compliant.

    Making a PDF Compliant and Accessible.
    Once a PDF has been tested using the CommonLook PDF Validator,
    it may be necessary to fix some issues to bring it into compliance.
