In partnership with Level Access, Nitro announces the latest Nitro PDF Pro release on Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Our built-in accessibility features are designed to empower every person and organization with the ability to create inclusive, compliant PDF documents.
SAN FRANCISCO – May 18, 2023 – Nitro Software, a global leader in SaaS PDF, eSign and business document solutions, launched new document accessibility features as part of the latest release of Nitro PDF Pro, its flagship product. Driven by its mission to provide easy-to-use, inclusive and compliant technology for all people and organizations, Nitro teamed up with digital accessibility solution provider Level Access.
“Everyone deserves access to digital information, and that includes the more than 1.3 billion people globally who identify as having a disability,” says Jonathon Avila, Chief Accessibility Officer at Level Access. “It has been deeply rewarding to support Nitro in providing innovative solutions that contribute to a more accessible digital world.”
Why do organizations need tools to create accessible PDF documents?
Document accessibility features are used by people with a range of needs, including those who are blind or have low vision. For organizations, particularly in higher education and government, accessibility features have a far-reaching and long-term impact on goals including:
Inclusivity: All people, including people with disabilities, should be equipped with technology that enables their success. With document accessibility tools, people with disabilities can participate and contribute equitably in education, the professional world and their communities.
Recruiting: Meeting the needs of all employees is a key differentiator for organizations during the recruiting and hiring process. Companies that prioritize the accessibility of documents and other digital information are at an advantage when competing for diverse talent.
Compliance: Many organizations are legally required to procure technology that meets accessibility compliance standards.
How is Nitro making documents more accessible and inclusive?
