Through this example (from the 2015 CSR Report of BNP Paribas), you can see the extent of the work being done, including tagging and intelligence of the reading direction, visible in the left margin. You can download the sample or listen to the page as would a blind person through his voice synthesizer.
Experts in the PDF accessibility since 2006, even before official standards, we use our know-how thanks to a method of tagging labeled e-accessibility.
Our methodology is based on international standards PDF / UA (ISO 14289-1) and includes user tests performed internally by a visually impaired expert to ensure the accessibility of your publications.
The W3C standards body of Web standards, issued in 2008 WCAG 2.0 standards (ISO 40500) for universal access of digital content on the Web. In 2010, the “PDF Techniques for WCAG 2.0” have been set up, and recognized in the PDF / UA (ISO 14289-1). The standard PDF / UA is included in the each country repositories such as AccessiWeb GRFA 3.0 SQGRI-008-02, Section 508, etc.
In several countries (France, England, Germany, USA, Canada, Australia, etc.), laws have evolved to promote the accessibility of digital documents for all. Beyond a legal obligation, the accessibility of PDF publications or documents is a real opportunity for companies and public bodies: a wider audience, a CSR commitment, citizen image, a better ranking on search engines.
