Measure and Track Accessibility Status of PDF Files

On Websites, Intranets, and Internal Networks

As documents go through various phases of authoring, verification, and distribution, managing accessibility compliance requirements to meet Section 508 or WCAG 2.0 AA requirements can be a daunting task for management, IT departments, and content authors.

CommonLook Clarity provides tools and methodology to effectively measure the accessibility of PDF electronic documents and track performance towards achieving great accessibility.

The software helps answer questions such as:

  • Clarity-reportHow do we measure the compliance level of the PDF content posted throughout the enterprise?
  • How can we track our progress over time?
  • Where should resources be directed to optimize compliance?
  • What is the optimal workflow for ensuring compliance with accessibility standards?


CommonLook Clarity does not replace typical web accessibility solutions that scan HTML/CSS content; it complements these other systems.

No other solution on the market includes CommonLook Clarity’s unique capabilities for enterprise-wide scanning, assessment, and progress-tracking of electronic document accessibility efforts.
