Emmanuelle understands the benefits to designers to learn about accessibility. She has seen first-hand the challenges faced with documents produced in InDesign but needing to be posted in accessible PDF. She has the skills and experience to address these challenges.
Wendy has owned Accessibil-IT since it’s incorporation in 2009. She has extensive experience working with clients to develop accessibility strategies; determining where in the process of document development the accessibility is best completed. She hears from organizations and individuals about the challenges of creating accessible documents, with the most common comment being “I followed the training, why didn’t the accessibility pass?”. She has spoken at conferences and has presented to executive committees about the challenges and potential solutions for achieving document accessibility which is accurately conveyed by adaptive technology.
