Accessibility in government

With ever-evolving legislation (both existing and pending), there is no better time than now to ensure the public can receive accessible programs and services, including accessible communications at every level of government.

T-Base converts conventional print government forms, applications, documents, brochures and online communications into alternate formats that people who have low vision or are blind can access.

Meet diverse needs through accessible programs and services

Technology has improved access to information, and more and more government programs, services and supporting communications are available online. In providing greater access to information, government gains the trust and confidence of the public it serves.

While online access is necessary, it’s important to ensure that communications available online are also available in braille, large print, audio and accessible PDF to meet the diverse needs of the public. Learn more about accessible documents.

Government accessibility online

Government websites must be accessible. Online content, including PDF documents hosted on government websites, must meet accessibility standards. Even though many government departments have web developers and content creators on staff, they are not always up to speed on the latest accessibility standards. In addition to website audits,  T-Base provides half- and full-day training in web accessibility as well as accessible PDF and office documents.
