Let’s improve digital inclusion

Digital channels have become standard when it comes to information retrieval and self-service solutions – but not everyone has equal opportunities for accessing digital tools.

A large portion of the population is dependent on assistive technology, such as screen readers, in order to access websites, documents and PDFs. To help this group with their digital experience, the EU Directive on the Accessibility of Public Websites and Mobile Applications became effective on 23 September 2018.

The Directive builds upon four main principles established by the organisation W3C in their: “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG)”: Websites and all content on them must be perceivable, understandable, operable, and robust.

WCAG 2.1 is the international standard for digital accessibility, which has set forth guidelines for descriptive texts for images, logos and other graphics, tables and links, etc.

Respecting these guidelines, however, can be challenging – even for experienced users. Assist is specifically designed to make it easier for Office users to follow the guidelines in WCAG 2.1 and the EU’s web accessibility directive by ensuring accessible documents – because digital inclusion is important.


Assist provides 360° assistance

The tool reviews title, headings, images, objects, tables, links, etc. and checks for Track Changes, comments and colour accessibility, in documents, spreadsheets and presentations, and presents all the necessary improvements in a menu. That way the user can easily go through the proposed improvements and add the missing tags directly in the tool’s panel.

The solution requires no WCAG 2.1 training and provides all relevant information along the way. Explanatory texts and an intuitive structure ensure that the user is always able to make the correct selections and entries.

Assist is installed as an add-in for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, where all checks and tagging for accessibility takes place in an easy-to-read side panel. After the document is reviewed, the tool also handles the conversion to PDF directly from the menu.

By tagging your Office templates correctly, you ensure that users get off to a good start every time. All templates developed by Dania Software are tagged for accessibility and you can combine Assist with DynamicTemplate for maximum synergy.
