Accessibility Starts With Structure

Accessibility is an approach to content and design that makes information available in alternative formats for people with vision impairment. DCL creates Section 508-compliant PDFs from both legacy PDF and image files. DCL’s expertise in analyzing content, providing compliance audits, and remediating, assures you a smooth process that makes content accessible to all.
