Signing Accessibly

To sign accessible PDFs within an accessible transaction, signers must first click the Enable accessibility mode button within the Signing Ceremony.

This button is available only if the transaction is accessible.

On desktops and laptops, the Enable accessibility mode button is at the top right of the signing page, and can be accessed using the keyboard or mouse. On a mobile device, this button is at the top of the signing page, and can be accessed by touch or by gesture navigation if a screen reader is enabled on the device.

Once accessiblity mode is enabled, the page will refresh and present the transaction's documents in a format that is consumable by screen-reader technology — including navigating all documents and completing the entire signing process.

  • The Signing Ceremony of an accessible transaction supports content magnification via the web browser (up to 200% zoom).
