All colleges must meet section 508 standards
Like nearly all colleges and universities, Hill College receives federal funding and is subject to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 regulations stipulate that all federal government programs, or programs that receive money from the federal government, must make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities. EIT includes websites and documents stored on it and must be accessible to everyone, including people who use assistive technology.
Hill College needed to update its website to meet Section 508 standards and to reach every student, professor, faculty member, or member of the public.

The challenge of PDF remediation
Equidox met Espoza’s needs because it’s cloud-based, easy to use, and features semi-automated Smart Detection Tools. It’s the fastest, easiest, and most accurate choice for Hill College. Equidox made the otherwise tedious and manual process of PDF remediation nearly automatic. “This is going on my third year using Equidox and I will continue to use this valuable tool to support our digital accessibility initiative.”
