Higher Education: This is for you
To give back to higher education institutions during these difficult times, CommonLook is providing a free subscription to two of our best-selling PDF accessibility software solutions: CommonLook PDF and CommonLook Office.
This offer is available exclusively for colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
To ensure that institutions can provide fully accessible PDF documents to students, staff and partners, we crafted a unique program that launched nationwide on March 26, 2021.
The offer consists of the following tools and training at absolutely no cost.
- One free subscription to our award-winning software, CommonLook PDF for Windows*. It tests and remediates PDF documents to ensure they are fully accessible and standards-compliant.
- One free subscription to CommonLook Office for Windows. This plug-in creates fully accessible and standards-compliant PDF documents directly from Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.
- Free training classes including Introduction to CommonLook PDF webinar and our O103-Online training, a self-paced online class for CommonLook Office.
- Both the software subscriptions and training are valid for six months.
- These two tools and world-class training are 100% free for your institution to use for a six-month period. Terms and conditions apply, but there are no strings attached.
*At this time our PDF accessibility tools are only available in a Windows environment.
Please fill out our form for more details. We will explain the program to you and get you signed up for the offer.
