Inclusive, Equitable Access.

It's ALWAYS About People.

We all know that providing equitable access to information is now paramount to the success of all organizations. But the motivating factor should never be the bottom line. After all, accessibility is and always should be about putting the needs of people first. Instead, the human element drives change, making it easier for organizations to create an inclusive environment with equitable access for all and without barriers to entry. And when pursued with the right intentions, accessibility will help organizations “do good” while doing well. 

Make Life Easier.

No Need to Feel Overwhelmed. 

Accessibility for many can seem overwhelming, highly complex, and scary—and rightfully so. From technology, legal requirements, compliance and the ever-growing demand for social responsibility, it’s no wonder that many organizations feel profoundly lost. Worse yet, the general industry message continues to be deeply rooted in oftentimes punitive language and tone—not exactly a welcoming sentiment for organizations trying to do the right thing. But it’s okay—we’re here to help.  

Affordable Accessibility.

All Documents. All Formats.

Our end-to-end print remediation and production services enable you to make all your communications accessible quickly and easily without IT investment.

Our team has extensive experience producing alternate document formats, including Unified English Braille (UEB), UEB Technical, English Braille American Edition (EBAE), Nemeth, Braille in English and French, and reflowed large print.

Best of all, we can accommodate any document type, including Explanation of Benefits (EOBs), bills, statements, standardized tests and exams, textbooks (including STEM subject matter), files and records, correspondence, and more.

Ultimate Protection and Privacy.

Secure Accessibility. Always. 

Processing secure, accessible documents is at the core of our business. And because we continuously manage highly confidential and private client information, we invest in the highest privacy and security standards. All Allyant employees are subject to the full rigor of our onboarding regime and ongoing training, security, and background checks—making Allyant the world’s most secure alternate format provider.

Healthcare Accessibility Standards.

HHS

The US Department of Health and Human Services developed the HHS standard for healthcare organizations. Every electronic or information resource created by or purchased through a healthcare provider in the United States is required by law to be accessible. Section 508 compliance is also necessary to meet HHS’s accessibility guidelines.

Conquer the PDF Mountain.

Easily Ensure PDF Documents and Forms are 100% Compliant.

As your digital documents rapidly accumulate, we can alleviate the burden by quickly and accurately verifying and fixing any number of assets. Our verification and remediation services provide an accurate, comprehensive and cost-effective way to achieve accessibility with Section 508, WCAG 2.0, PDF/UA 1.0 and HHS compliance for public-facing, popular or significant volumes of PDF documents and forms.

Best of all, with Allyant’s PDF Accessibility Assessment and Remediation Service, you receive a comprehensive report providing our ironclad guarantee of full compliance.

Your Accessibility Ally.

Let’s Be Goal-Oriented Together.

At Allyant, we believe every organization’s journey toward equitable access should be simple and seamless—eliminating the worry, stress and uncertainty often associated with accessibility. Therefore, we will actively partner with you and your team to embrace your goals and address all aspects of accessibility, including digital, document and print mediums.
