  • Large volume of digital documents needed to be processed and made accessible

  • Around 12k document pages were made accessible in 8 working days


codemantra’s accessibilityInsight™ platform was leveraged to make the documents WCAG and PDF/UA compliant.

  • A document data lake comprising millions of documents streamlined the ML process and ensured document classification and tagging were executed accurately
