Accessibility and inclusion: Accessible PDF creation with GrackleDocs

Web accessibility has always been a requirement for UMaine websites, and has been a regular feature in our monthly newsletter. Ensuring your content is accessible is part of an inclusive communication strategy.

Recently the University of Maine System licensed a new accessibility tool, GrackleDocs. It is available to everyone from the “Add-ons” menu when editing a Google Doc, Sheet or Slide.

GrackleDocs adds accessibility checking and repair guidance where documents are created. Alongside checking tools is an accessible PDF export feature for Google Workspace documents.

More information about GrackleDocs is available on the UMS IT website.
