Hi Sean, first I hear about Equidox, thanks for bringing it up. In your experience, how good is it at turning an inaccessible PDF into one we would consider accessible, or at least WCAG 2.0 AA compliant? If you ran a PDF made accessible with Equidox, would it pass the Acrobat accessibility checker, or PAC2?

In addition to the other tools listed, have you tried Equidox? It is a
software-as-a-service option that allows you to import PDF documents, make
changes for accessibility, and then export as a tagged PDF version.

We are supporting this option to colleges who are looking for a PDF
remediation solution and are not able to or do not wish to use Adobe
Acrobat.

Take care,
Sean
