FAQ: “So-and So only charges $1 per page. Can you remediate my documents at that rate?

This one goes right along with “We didn’t put anything in our budget for Section 508 compliance- is there a way our documents can be remediated for next to nothing?”

There are remediation services that provide what we call “letter of the law” compliance.  They take your document, run it through the Adobe Acrobat auto-tag, correct reported errors, and check reading order. You get a document that passes the auto-checks.  What you may not get is an accessible document.

Why isn’t the document accessible? Try listening to it with a screenreader, like JAWS or Dragon.
