Testimonials

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

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.

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.

Terry Rattray, Creative Services Manager, The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

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.

The accessible PDF course was excellent. The training was clearly delivered and tailored to meet our needs. Ted’s experience and knowledge has equipped us with the ability, understanding and confidence to create PDFs in an accessible way.

Sense

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.

Carol Jamieson, Sense

Tandridge District Council

After a day’s training with Ted, we now have in-house expertise in creating accessible PDFs. This has meant we can make sure our website documents are fully accessible. We also appreciate Ted’s on-going advice, which he is always happy to give. The course was also excellent value for money, which is essential for a small district council like ours.

Giuseppina Valenza, Tandridge District Council

Rica

Ted has a very clear teaching style which made for an excellent day’s training for Rica staff. A lot of information was delivered and Ted did this with skill, providing us with very comprehensive notes but also making time for useful discussion—a must for all organisations committed to accessibility.

The Macular Disease Society

Ted’s expertise and experience has saved us from making expensive and time consuming mistakes as well as guiding us to producing great PDFs that everyone can use.

Pete Torkington, the Macular Disease Society

University of Bradford

Ted’s expert knowledge proved invaluable in providing us with an understanding of not only how to use the tools within Adobe Acrobat Professional to create accessible PDF forms, but more importantly the concepts behind accessibility and how screen readers work with such software. The style of the training was relaxed and we were able to ask questions throughout. This is an excellent training course, which we would highly recommend. Thank you Ted!

Jacqui Cuthbert, University of Bradford

Nimbus Business Intelligence Solutions

It was a long way to travel for a course [Canada to London] but well worth it.

Tim Morrow, President, Nimbus Business Intelligence Solutions, Ontario

Amazon book review

Covering Indesign, Word and OpenOffice and some file remediation in Acrobat itself, Page’s surprisingly inexpensive book would be a great investment for anyone interested in creating accessible PDFs.

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