Accessible PDFs

Accessible PDFs ensure that information is accessible for everyone, something which The Equality Act 2010 states is required from businesses and organisations.

Regular PDFs can often be problematic for assistive technology users as they are essentially scanned images.

Connect Design can provide fully interactive PDFs, ensuring that your information meets the required standards and can be accessed by all end users. Our specialists ensure that our documents or forms in PDF format are properly tagged and well-structured using heading levels, paragraphs, tables, lists and figures to provide the correct reading order. We can also add bookmarks and links to any document to make navigation easier.

Find out more about how we can provide Accessible PDFs for your business or upload your document using the form below.

Quality Assurance

We guarantee that PDF/UA accessibility standards and requirements are being met.

To quality assure our documents we use JAWS (Job Access With Speech) and NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access).


Alternative Text Suggestions

If the PDF file contains an image then alternative text is needed to communicate information which would ordinarily be inaccessible. Alternative text suggestions can be made for any images to ensure that the file satisfies Text To Speech or Screen Reader requirements.

Form Fields

Form fields are designed to be electronically fillable by the end user and can be embedded in a document with usage instructions. This allows users to input information as required.

If you would like to submit your document please use the submission form below.

Step 1: Upload your PDF using the form below.

Step 2: We add tags, mark headings, lists & tables, set the correct reading order and add alternative text.

Step 3: We validate it to meet Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and test with assistive technology users.
