Cloud508 is a unique cloud-based service that automates the remediation of high-volume, widely used government documents such as tax, health and benefits communications and other notices and statements into standards-compliant accessible PDF, braille, audio and large print formats.
Cloud508 has been designed to support Section 508 compliance, while reducing cost and complexity from traditional processes to assist people who are visually impaired. Cloud508’s accessible output has been verified by The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB).
The service is a collaboration between 3 leading US companies to deliver an industry-first cloud-based automated document accessibility service. It combines the strengths of Actuate Corporation - an innovator in document accessibility technology, Braille Works – a leading provider of alternative reading formats for the visually impaired, and Venatôre – a trusted federal government Data Center and Cloud Engineering solutions provider.
