Adapting PDF Documents for Accessibility
Our recent website launch introduces a novel service to the Polish market: making PDF documents accessible. The website streamlines the process for organizations to receive pricing estimates and order accessibility adaptations, significantly reducing the time required for order completion.
Detailed Project Description
The need for this project arose from the challenge of spending approximately 10 hours monthly preparing offers and price estimates. Our clients required prompt budgetary confirmations, and the delay in responding to inquiries was inconvenient for both sides.
To address this, we sought feedback from our customers and prospects about their needs and expectations. Their insights helped us develop a prototype for the website's information architecture.
User Experience Focus
- The website design emphasizes intuitive use and an appealing visual interface, combining a modern aesthetic in red and white with comprehensive accessibility features, as expected from Kinaole.
- We conducted thorough accessibility and usability testing. For instance, the calculator was specifically designed to easily modify pricing estimates, and the online ordering process was streamlined for user convenience.
- We ensured full WCAG compliance, incorporating features like appropriate contrast, clear headings, skip-links, landmarks, user-friendly forms, and screen-reader-friendly alerts for accurate error messages.

The resulting website, dostepny.pdf, integrates the entire process into an elegant and accessible online platform. It enables customers to adapt their PDF documents swiftly, encompassing steps from price calculation to order placement and initiation of the adaptation process. The whole procedure can now be completed in approximately one hour, making it a significant time-saving innovation in Poland.
This solution is specifically designed for organizations keen on making their PDF content accessible to a broader audience. Our goal is to enhance the PDF experience for end-users, and this faster process is just the beginning. Plans include adding training services for PDF accessibility evaluation and launching a dedicated blog.
