Background on the Law and Regulations

The accessibility regulations in North America and Europe are usually based on Equal Rights for People with Disabilities Acts. They dictate that an organization that provides public service, or information regarding a public service through the internet, which is intended for the general public, including web sites, documents, applications, and any other information transferred via the internet, is obligated to conduct accessibility compatibility for the service, or information regarding the service that it supplies. According to these regulations, documents too have to be accessible, including new and existing PDF documents.

EasyAccess PDF

The EasyAccess PDF product is an applicative software package that provides a solution for converting existing PDF format documents into accessible documents. This solution reads the existing document and makes it automatically accessible according to the definitions regarding document accessibility and according to the Acrobat Accessible PDF 1.7 standard.

The solution is focused solely on making existing documents accessible, and that is one of the reasons it is very simple to operate. The user can preview and examine the result of the automatic conversion with the Composedoc application viewer and with Adobe Acrobat, on a PDF document that the system creates for display and examination purposes.

The automatic solution brings the level of accessibility to 70%-100% of the requirements (depending on the complexity of the document) and includes simple graphic tools (editor) that enable the user to examine and edit the automatic conversion results (the accessible document) and improve the level of accessibility as necessary.

The Composedoc solution handles all types of content elements relevant for accessibility including: titles, clauses, lists, tables, and images. An accessible PDF format document that can be read by a screen reader is obtained at the end of the process.

In the case that following the automated accessibility stage it is necessary to improve the accessibility level of the document, we estimate the general time for examining and amending the documents to be a very few minutes per page (depending on the complexity of the document).

MappingAccess PDF

The MappingAccess PDF system is used for the production and distribution of regular template-based PDF format business documents. This system enables reading variable information in existing PDF documents (in template format) and transferring it to an accessible template. Examples of such documents are customer letters, e-learning materials (including Moodle), personal financial reports, personal bank statements, periodic personal reports for pension funds, personal portfolio reports, and more.

The user defines a onetime automatic production process for making the document accessible based on the document templates, and the system will convert all the existing non-accessible documents based on this template into accessible documents. The new PDF produced document is 100% accessible. There is no need for manual amendment work.

The Composedoc solution handles all types of content elements relevant for accessibility including: titles, clauses, lists, tables, and images. An accessible PDF format document that can be read by a screen reader is obtained at the end of the process.

Complexity Calculator for PDFs

The Complexity Calculator is capable of reading a PDF format document folder, analyzes and pre-assesses the complexity of making all the documents in the folder accessible. This solution provides a statistical summary of the number of documents in the folder, including a total number of pages, number of empty pages, and the general complexity of the document. In addition, a detailed list of the complexity aspects of each document in the folder is also available.
