Turn accessibility into a competitive advantage.

Persons with disabilities (PwDs) make up more than 20% of the world’s population and are emotionally connected to over 70% of consumers.* Yet a lack of compliance and low accessibility in matters of digital documentation continue to create significant hurdles for them.

Smart, end-to-end remediation for non-compliant PDF documents is the solution.

RRD RemediAd combines human resources with powerful AI technologies to help organizations comply with global standards like WCAG, ADA, and Section 508.

Why digital compliance and accessibility matter

Making documents usable with accessibility readers ensures that an individual’s basic human need to receive information is protected, irrespective of who they are
and the nature of their disability.



The reality is most websites, documents, and mobile applications are not being designed for people with sight, cognitive, and other disorders who have difficulty accessing and consuming information.

To address this lack of attention, governments have made digital accessibility compliance mandatory in certain areas and a best practice in others.
