Accessible documents

Did you know that the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) (DDA) makes it against the law to discriminate against a person because of disability when providing goods, services or facilities, or access to
public premises?

That’s where accessibility comes in.

But feeling overwhelmed when it comes to PDF remediation or creating accessible PDF documents, accessible Microsoft Office documents and accessibility in general is normal. I get it.

If you’re here you probably know that creating accessible documents for your business is an important step, but knowing where to start or why it’s worth your time and budget can see accessibility quickly banished to the too-hard-basket.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I take accessibility very seriously. I proudly do all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. I’m a seasoned accessibility guru who has worked in production for many years and an accomplished graphic designer that believes in the power of branding (and sticking to it!). I’ll take your brief and get to work straight away, helping you to make this important (and ethical) step seamless, and meet those integral deadlines.

Whether it's new artwork or remediation of legacy documents, I can create digital or print accessible documents such as:

report icon

reports & standard documentation

fillale PDF form icon

fillable PDF forms

promotional piece in folder icon

promotional material

open annual report icon

annual reports

I can help you with accessibility by:

  • Ensuring the correct font styling, layout, colour contrast, 
    heading structure and bookmarking is used which complies with accessibility standards.

  • Correcting background tags in documents, tables, hyperlinks and lists to ensure they can be read properly by screen readers.

  • Implementing accessibility features in fillable forms and tables, while enabling access to all relevant parties.

  • Adding alternate text to images and items that helps screen
    readers tell the whole story.

  • Offering 18pt large print versions or purely universally accessible PDF’s (PDF/UA)

I work with many file types, including PDF, Adobe InDesign and Microsoft Word, Powerpoint & Excel and supply you with a file your end-users have full access to. I also provide the native files to use down the track with as much accessibility function applied as is possible.
