Actuate works with American Foundation for the Blind on content accessibility

Actuate Corp. (NASDAQ: BIRT) has announced its collaboration with the American Foundation for the Blind to develop content that can be easily accessed and interpreted by the visually impaired community.

Actuate helps facilitate such communication through its BIRT Content Services product line, including the PDF Accessibility Solution, which enables high-volume content to be converted to accessible documents that can be read aloud by assistive technology like the JAWS Reader or Window-Eyes, two of the available screen readers used by people who are blind or visually impaired.

Based on Actuate´s Content Services Group (formerly Xenos Group) technology, the PDF Accessibility Solution is a complete, end-to-end accessibility solution that integrates with an organization´s existing document management system to capture high-volume print streams and automatically remediate them into properly tagged, accessible documents.

The American Foundation for the Blind is a national nonprofit that expands possibilities for people with vision loss.
