Keeping Up With Compliance: Ensuring Your Content Reaches Everybody!


With over 20 years of experience, Absolute Service, Inc. has provided a variety of services to the education, publishing, printing, and healthcare markets. Over the years, these markets have evolved and the communication needs for both have grown. As the target audiences have changed, what were once primarily print-centric deliveries now include a host of digital deliverables. No longer can the focus solely be on a printed book, catalog, or directory, but content has to be delivered electronically to reach a wider audience. With this evolution, more than ever, companies must consider their audience and take into account disabilities, special needs, and other constraints that could prevent their audiences and users from receiving this content.

In order to meet the needs of wider and everchanging audiences, companies must adhere to Section 508 and the requirements around compliance. This includes ensuring that documents are presented in a format so that screen readers can read the text correctly, charts/graphs/images have descriptive text to explain what is presented, and documents provide links for easy navigation. As users are now receiving information through various media (from digital documents and email to websites and online portals and learning management systems), companies must look beyond the printed material and ensure that they can provide digital communication that meets these new accessibility standards.

To find out more about 508 compliance, and to ensure that your content meets ADA requirements, contact us to learn how we can help. The ASI team can work with you to create needed 508-compliant PDFs and documents to deliver to your customers, users, and students. ASI can review your content and work with your team to structure your content for 508 compliance (defining reading order in documents, creation of alt-text for images/photos/graphics/tables, etc.). We also offer translation services to present your content in different languages to meet the needs of an ever-growing global customer base. We can even help you with the production of ebooks and web PDFs.
