PDF Accessibility Services, 508 Compliance

What is Compliance and What are Standards?

When we talk about compliance we are talking about complying with laws such as Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, The Americans with Disabilities Act or other international laws.  These laws set the legal parameters to ensure that the content we create on websites and in digital documents like PDFs is accessible and can be used by all individuals including those with impairments. 

To achieve compliance we follow standards to make a document accessible.  The two most common standards are PDF/UA and WCAG both with the same goal of universal readability by computer technologies, including assistive technologies. While similar they are not identical but by incorporating you can achieve 508 compliance or compliance with other laws.

    The project I work on has used Digital Echo frequently over the past year to make our PDFs accessible. They do a great job for a very fair price and have a quick turnaround time. What I like most about them, though, is their excellent communication. They always get back to me quickly, keep me apprised of their schedule for current jobs, and explain things clearly. I feel very lucky to have found this company. They've made it so easy for us to make our documents accessible.

    Digital Echo has been a great partner in helping us to ensure ADA compliance for our online digital viewbook. The price was very reasonable, the work was done well, and the responsiveness to our requests was immediate. I would highly recommend them to my colleagues. You will not be disappointed.

    John Mulvey and his team are great to work with at Digital Echo.  They have completed ADA compliance review checks on multiple, complex files for our clients.  We are always impressed with their quality of work and turnaround time.  We plan to continue to work with them in the future.
