RiverDocs reviewed by Web Accessibility Expert

An essential tool for any organisation which publishes Microsoft Word or PDF files online, RiverDocs Converter is vastly superior to any other conversion software currently available. There's now no reason for publishers not to offer accessible, high quality HTML versions of documents previously published only in proprietary formats. The parser even compensates for poorly authored source documents, previously a significant barrier to producing accessible, semantic HTML versions of Word and PDF documents.

Preaching to the converted By Paul Crichton

A new desktop utility called the RiverDocs Converter, has been released that promises to convert your inaccessible documents designed for print, into a structured and accessible format for delivery online.

Documents are typically delivered online in PDF format. In many ways, this format is unsuited for the web. PDF files are notoriously difficult to make accessible, and are not especially user-friendly to anyone. This new tool should be very welcome as it makes the process of providing an alternative much easier than ever before.
