Product Description

The accessibilityInsight™ platform includes three core accessibility solutions.

The first two are fully automated:

  • AccessibilityCheck is used for accessibility compliance reporting – helping organisations understand the scale and nature of their compliance issues
  • accessibilityFix remediates PDFs ensuring they are WCAG compliant

The third core solution provides tools for operators to interact manually with remediated documents:

  • accessibilityReview allows organisations to review, Quality Assurance and perform interactive remediation as needed, to add alt text descriptions.

In all instances the licences are valid for 12 months from start date.

The accessibilityInsight™ platform derives structure and intelligence from documents using a two-pronged approach. The approach is modelled on how the human eye generates visual images of a document, which are then passed on to the brain to decode information. In accessibilityInsight™, an image processing module generates the visuals and works in tandem with the AI-based core engine, which extracts structure from the document using purpose-built machine learning (ML) models. The structure that the AI-based engine decodes is then used to transform the document into a format that is compliant with international accessibility standards. 

Automated alt text production: accessibilityInsight™ can auto-generate alt text for maths equations. The machine learning power of the platform combined with codemantra’s content transformation tools provides customers with alt text that requires a light touch QA before the mathematics content is published.

accessibilityInsight™ can concurrently manage thousands of document processing jobs every day. This has proven practical for the digitization of vast backlists of academic publications at pace. In July 2021, codemantra worked with the University of Westminster to make 12,000 archived pages accessible for people with disabilities in 8 days.

codemantra has a strong track record of ensuring robust data security and compliance in its management of customer assets for its customers, who include international non-governmental agencies, national, state and local government, higher education institutions and other public and private sector organisations. codemantra is SOC 2 compliant and ISO certified for quality management. The company leverages AWS to protect customer data and secure the accessibilityInsight™ platform against vulnerabilities and attacks.
