This workshop was extremly beneficial and in depth. Ted covered everything from basic functions in InDesign, to creating a gold standard accessible PDF. I really appreciate all the time and effort he has put in to his work. I enjoyed Ted’s teaching method, as well as how open and receptive to questions and feedback he was during both training sessions. He was willing to answer our questions, and show us how to do tasks that weren’t necessarily in the manual. I think this workshop was truly fantastic. I can’t say enough how much I valued this experience.

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

It is always a pleasure to work with Ted. There is nothing he doesn’t know about making communications accessible. He willingly shares his knowledge and expertise and has been an invaluable support to my team. He has helped us out on many occasions with tight deadlines and the standard of his work is always of the highest quality.

Very thorough and well explained. Ted takes the time to make sure you have followed and understood each stage before he moves on to the next. He welcomes questions and takes the time to answer them fully. During Covid-19 lockdown, Ted has made the move from face-to-face group training to Zoom-based training very efficiently. Having experienced both, I think they were both excellent formats. Ted bonds well with his trainees and takes care to pace the training and break-times so that everyone can maintain their focus and get the most out of the course.

Local Government Association

I thoroughly enjoyed this virtual workshop. I initially had doubts about using Zoom to deliver the workshop though these were quickly dispersed. Going forward my preference will be to do all workshops by way of Zoom. Ted’s knowledge on the subject of accessibility is amazing. His delivery was pitched at exactly the right level and I felt I could ask questions whenever needed. I left the workshop thoroughly energised and ready to put my new found knowledge into practice.

I found the workshop very informative and enjoyable. I was aware of some accessibility concepts to some degree, but this opened my eyes. I learnt a lot and also saw some aspects in a very new light. As well as learning about accessible documents, I also learnt a lot about how Microsoft Word is set up and some very useful techniques that can be applied in the programme. I enjoyed learning a new way of working and that I came away with a lot of food for thought. I also thought Ted was a very knowledgeable and likeable trainer, and he had some interesting nuggets and stories to share. Ted also kindly agreed to change from a face-to-face class to an online class to accommodate us.

Arts Council of Wales

Ted provided a range of training for Arts Council of Wales staff encompassing creating accessible documents in MS Word and more specialist training for our graphic designer on ensuring accessibility in design packages such as Adobe Acrobat and InDesign. The training he provided has been transformative, leading to the setting up of new templates and  practices within the organisation. We look forward to building on this foundation to make all our published material as accessible as possible for as wide a range of audiences as we can.

Student Loans Company

A huge thanks to Ted and the team for their ongoing guidance and support as we look to modernise our suite of forms to ensure they are fully accessible now and can be easily maintained for the future. My team and colleagues were not only impressed by the training and support Ted provided, which has equipped them with the technical and theoretical knowledge to drive our programme of changes forward, but by the infectious enthusiasm he displayed as an advocate for accessible design and the good practise which improves inclusion across public services.

Ted helped us to turn a very complicated document into a fully accessible PDF version. The outcome was great! It was a pleasure working with Ted and we learned a lot through this process about what has to be considered if you want to make your PDF files accessible.

BT

I have worked with Ted over a number of years, first on creating accessible PDF then moving on to accessible ebooks. I do not know of anyone with a greater wealth of knowledge or experience in these areas. If you are looking for advice, information or training on any of these topics, your first stop should be to talk to Ted.

David Barrett, BT Senior Inclusion and Accessibility Manager

Anybody wishing to know more about accessible PDFs should look no further.

They’ve quickly, efficiently and cheerfully turned PDFs designed purely for print into ones that a wide range of people can use on the web.

Sightsavers

I was a little daunted at the prospect of a full day’s course on creating accessible PDFs from InDesign, but I needn’t have worried. The process was interesting and thorough covering every aspect in a clear and simple way. The additional materials that you take away are invaluable with step by step instructions to follow. Ted’s experience is excellent and made what at times is a very complex process so much clearer.

The Open University

The ebook training was extremely valuable. We are now well equipped to publish well-structured ebooks that will be flawlessly accessible to our students.

Alison Edwards, Learning Design & Technology, the Open University

The [PDF] training was motivating, inspiring, interesting and informative. Ted’s proven knowledge was delivered in a comfortable manner, with easy explanations helping to engage delegates fully with the subject matter.

Ted delivered Creating Accessible Documents training to staff from a variety of backgrounds and departments in Sense and all found it a really interesting session, which stimulated lots of discussion and made everyone feel more confident about generating documents that will meet the needs of the people we support. We would thoroughly recommend the training to others.
