Depending on complexity, almost any type of document can be made accessible according to standards like WCAG 2.0 and PDF/UA. However whether that document is useable and comprehensible by the reader is another matter and is affected by how the document was laid out or set up in the software used to create it.
Most common source software formats that can be made accessible and converted into accessible PDFs are:
- Microsoft Word
- Microsoft PowerPoint
- Adobe InDesign
- Microsoft Excel
- Adobe PDF
We can make your PDFs accessible irrespective of source software formats, however this does add a degree of complexity and time. Types of PDFs such as maps which might have been created in Photoshop for instance can also be made accessible. Media Access Australia has access to professional PDF remediation tools that are able to identify and rectify accessibility issues and errors in less time than using tools that are available to the public.
