The Best of Two Worlds

Most clients use a hybrid approach that outsources manual remediation for critical documents while learning how to remediate them in-house. For obvious reasons, time-sensitive and mission-critical documents are often outsourced.

CommonLook Hybrid approach: proprietary software, professional remediation services and world-class pdf accessibility training

The typical implementation approach for clients starts with remediating low-hanging fruit (the shorter, less-complex documents) in-house and the overflow (the longer, more complex, or even just too numerous for available resources to handle) documents via outsourced partners.

Clients wishing to do the work with internal resources need to use the best software tools to do a quality job and have the ability to test their work and create a compliance report.

White Papers

Global clients are served through offices in Arlington, VA; Ottawa, Canada; and Melbourne, Australia. Customers include government departments and agencies, institutes of higher education, financial and healthcare enterprises, and major corporations.
