MasterONE Accessibility Architecture
MasterONE is a revolutionary breakthrough in document accessibility compliance.
MasterONE is a game-changing way to simplify the delivery of accessible documents. With MasterONE you can easily meet all your customer and employee document accessibility needs and be in compliance while reducing your costs and simplifying your processes.
Without MasterONE, business documents are only readable by people with normal vision and reading capabilities. Blind, partially sighted and those with cognitive disabilities require different formats when consuming documents. As a document producer you are obliged to meet these requests via a physical accommodation whether that be a digital or physical accessible document. Each requested document type (braille, eText, large text, etc.) requires a different method of tagging and a method for converting the documents. This has made it costly and cumbersome to handle these diverse preferences.
MasterONE is a protocol that is the basis for a wide range of accessibility products and services. It provides unprecedented levels of efficiency, usability and compatibility.
Canada Post Delivers Accessible Documents
In order to be in compliance with current regulations, Canada Post needed to provide secure delivery of Government of Canada Pensioner electronic documents, including direct deposit statements, newsletters, and tax forms in Accessible PDF. They employed CrawfordTech solutions to automatically convert thousands of documents on a daily basis to Accessible PDF. These documents are created at a rate of hundreds to thousands of pages per second, ensuring timely delivery and allowing blind and partially sighted individuals to navigate vital communications with assistive technology.
With MasterONE, your original documents can be accessible to everyone. The electronic documents can be created in Accessible PDF/Accessible HTML5 so anyone can read them. Your paper documents can be read by anyone using their smartphone with the Voiceye app. MasterONE takes it even a step further. Realizing that Accessible electronic documents and Voiceye may not handle 100% of your requirements, documents that have been processed with MasterONE can be easily transformed to any of the traditional “alternate formats”. These formats include braille, large print, eText and audio.
This can eliminate accommodation requests for accessible documents, and put you in compliance. Your Accessibility Professionals only need to set up the MasterONE tagging rules once.
Eliminate Discrimination in Communication
With Crawford Technologies accessibility solutions, organizations can automate documents for accessible delivery at high speeds and in high volumes. Meeting the needs of the growing population of blind, partially sighted and cognitively disabled individuals is now possible through a one-step process. Accessibility can be “business as usual”.
No longer do you need to manage accessibility as an exception. With MasterONE you are in control of creating all accessible formats for all documents - both electronic and physical. The traditional setup and manual remediation costs for providing accommodation upon request are virtually eliminated.
A Comprehensive Range of Formats
With MasterONE, you can be in compliance with ADA, Section 508, AODA, EN-501-349 and other global standards for accessible documents. Since documents can be remediated on demand or stored in their target formats, you and your customers will also benefit from the reduced time it will take for those critical documents to be delivered.
