We refer to ourselves as document accessibility partners, and (full disclosure) sometimes your partners partner up with other companies. It’s less like McDonald’s partnering with Burger King, and more like McDonald’s partnering with a point of sale (POS) system that makes the drive-through orders go smoothly down the assembly line. In this case, we’ve partnered with Open Text. You may have heard of Open Text because they make software products that automate document accessibility, document organization, tagging, etc., in many languages for some of the world’s largest companies. But, if you haven’t heard of them, consider this as your friends introducing you to someone, “you just have to meet at the party.”

Full Product Offering

“Partnering with OpenText works very well. It’s a great relationship. It provides accessibility to more people, and that’s a very big deal. It provides people with the independence and freedom to manage their own information-it’s amazing what that brings to life.”

- Glen Schubert, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Client Relations, Braille Works


Open Texts’ solution makes the remediation process affordable for all of our clients. The time it takes for an individual to remediate your documents manually is cut down. Open Text’s tool auto-detects formatting issues, reflows the PDF, and then our team tackles the document for more accurate remediation. A Braille Works professional performs the important step of a manual check to comply with Section 508 and the ADA. Section 508 compliance guidelines require an individual to check for compliance manually, so with OpenText, we provide an affordable, scalable, compliant solution for accessibility.

Better Together

Braille Works brings the depth of experience in the production of alternative format content. This experience combined with OpenText’s expertise in high-volume accessibility solutions creates a mutually beneficial partnership. A great resource for companies looking for a complete solution to their accessible document needs.
