Crawford Technologies offer a range of Document Accessibility Services, such as Braille printing services, large-print documents and conversion to PDF/UA, audio and eText.

For the visually impaired and for others, the ability to access their bills, statements and other transactional documents means greater independence. With over 21 million North Americans having profound visual impairment, governments and corporations alike are seeking to eliminate the barriers in providing reasonable accommodation for information accessibility.

Considerable settlements have been granted in the courts for companies not in compliance with the relevant laws. These statutes include section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Section 255 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act of 2005.

To grant reasonable accommodation, ensure legal compliance and support forward-thinking corporate initiatives, Crawford Technologies provides an industry-leading solution for the delivery of billing statements and other transactional documents for visually impaired customers in alternate formats.

  • Large Print - Low vision and print disabled clients will utilize this format to ensure that the billing statements are easily read. By reformatting and enlarging the text, clients are able to access their personal and confidential information independently.

  • Audio - For clients who are auditory dependant, audio provides clear and precise information about their billing statements on CD in CD audio and mp3.
