Actuate Secures Patent for PDF Accessibility Solution [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Actuate Corp., a BIRT Company focusing on personalized analytics and insights, announced that it has received a U.S. patent (no. 8619272) entitled "Automated Assistive Technology for the Visually Impaired" for its PDF Accessibility Solution.

In a release, the Company said this software is an accessibility solution that integrates with an organization's existing document management system to capture high volume print streams and automatically remediate them into properly tagged, accessible documents.

Actuate's patented PDF Accessibility Solution provides a design environment that enables organizations to create specific tagging rules for interpreting and transforming high volume content into accessible PDF documents. Once the rules have been stored, the entire tagging and transformation process becomes completely automated.

Actuate said its PDF Accessibility Solution is particularly valuable for organizations that routinely dispense high-volume transaction output, such as bank statements, insurance policies, explanation of benefits documents, and utilities bills. For instance, banks can benefit from this solution by using it to automatically deliver accessible statements to their visually impaired customers, eliminating the need to perform time consuming and costly manual remediation each month.

In addition, the PDF Accessibility Solution offers document creation, storage and delivery capabilities of high-volume, accessible content. This ensures readily available customer account information, allowing those with vision loss or blindness to independently and accurately manage their affairs at any time, without relying on sighted assistance.

Actuate provides software to more than three million BIRT developers and OEMs who build scalable, secure solutions that save time and improve brand experience by delivering personalized analytics and insights to over 200 million of their customers, partners and employees. Actuate is headquartered in Silicon Valley with more than 5,000 enterprise customers in financial services, technology and government.
