Zero Project Conference: Consist Discuss Accessible PDFs with Ofir Grinner


In this interview hosted by Steven Scott and Shaun Preece at the 2024 Zero Project Conference, they interview Ofir Grinner, head of the NAGIX Division at Consist, a global software company.

Ofir discusses their software solution for making documents accessible, particularly those based on PDF format. The conversation delves into the difference between manually making a document accessible and using their software, which is capable of handling millions of documents at scale.

The hosts also talk about the inaccessibility of PDFs and the importance of making documents accessible for screen reader users. Ofir explains that their software is aimed at enterprise-level companies, such as banks and insurance companies, to ensure customer satisfaction and accessibility.

They also discuss the challenge of raising awareness and getting buy-in from companies that may not understand the importance of accessibility.
