Document Accessibility (Alternative Formats, Remediation and Transformation) Vendors

The absence of accessible documents is a threat to the security and privacy of disabled people. Alternative formats include braille, large print, ePub, audio CD and MP3, HTML, accessible PDF and other electronic documents. Not all vendors listed here provide all formats.

Visit the Alternative Format Press Release Category and the Alternative Format Settlements Category to learn more about how Structured Negotiation has helped institutions provide their visually impaired end-users (customers, patients, etc.) with information they can read independently.

Standards for large print documents can be found in the Best Practices and Guidelines for Large Print Documents issued by the American Council of the Blind.

Standards for braille documents can be found on the website of the Braille Authority of North America (BANA)

Captioning and Audio Description Resources

Note: The terms “audio description” and “video description” are used interchangeably in the disabled community. The terms refer to verbal description of visual aspects of live entertainment, films and streaming content. Description (also referred to as narration) provides accessibility to people who cannot see visual content.
