PAW is a breakthrough technology that makes it possible to create accessible PDF documents directly from Microsoft Office applications . Organizations no longer require specialized teams to handle the accessibility process, significantly lowering the cost of compliance with accessibility standards.
PAW makes accessibility an integral part of the authoring process. As easy to use as spell check, PAW enables organizations to greatly improve the quality and quantity of accessible information. Use of PAW does not require prior knowledge of accessibility as the Accessibility Wizard presents simple-to-understand instructions that guide the user through Section 508 and other important accessibility checkpoints.
PAW is designed to minimize the time it takes to add accessibility to Word and PDF documents. Users are presented with only those checkpoints that are relevant to the content of the MS Office document they are authoring. Additionally, PAW enables users to check for and add accessibility information where such information is supported by MS Office.
