PDF Accessibility Software

Novice or pro, making your PDFs WCAG, ADA, and Section 508 compliant has never been simpler. Cloud-based or on-prem.

Anyone can use Equidox

Equidox software is designed so you don’t need special skills to remediate documents. No need to interact with a complex tag tree.  Any content creator can make their own PDFs accessible.

Equidox software enables you to remediate PDFs quickly and easily, without compromising accuracy. Our Smart Detection Tools reduce the most tedious remediation tasks to just a few clicks.

Have a look at some of our most time-saving features:

Text and Reading Order

Equidox features a Smart Zone Detector that automatically identifies text, images, and links.
Simply adjust the slider to give yourself a great starting point for remediating your document.
You can quickly reset the reading order with the “Re-Order” button, and insert elements into the reading order using a decimal system so you don’t have to renumber every element.

Equidox’s Smart List Detector reduces list remediation to a few clicks.
Even nested lists are done in seconds.
Adjust the slider to create an accessible list and check your work in the HTML preview.

The Equidox Smart Table Detector uses machine learning to detect rows and columns.
Adjust the column and row detectors, set your headings, check for any spanned cells, and you’re done.
Equidox even auto-populates the table summary with row and column headings and any spanned cells.

Writing alt text has never been easier.
Either write your descriptions on each page or add them all in one place in the Image Pane.
Collaborate with subject matter experts to provide complex alt text descriptions in a single location.
You can also artifact unnecessary decorative images quickly and easily.

Zone Transfer

The Equidox Zone Transfer feature allows you to copy tags from one nearly identical document to another, saving time and effort remediating. Adjust as needed to accommodate minor variations.
Great for meeting minutes, repetitive recurring reports, documents that have been updated, or materials with copies in multiple languages.

Does Equidox save you time?


said yes

"Adobe was a nightmare. It took so long to do the remediation – it wasn’t user-friendly. The Commonlook plug-in tool was cost-prohibitive for our needs. Staff loves using Equidox as a solution to make documents ADA compliant. It’s so much faster than Adobe. Equidox training was great, and it was very easy to learn. We were able to start fixing our documents in-house right away. When we need it, the support is responsive – not canned responses, but a real person helping us. Our return on investment was recouped very quickly. Equidox is well worth the money."
