Bevi Chagnon heads up PubCom, one of Washington’s leading consultancies for government publishing in cross-media — print, web, digital, Acrobat PDF, and accessibility. Many in government know her from classes at the US Government Publishing Office where she’s a senior instructor for digital media and accessibility.
Chagnon specializes in helping government publishers streamline their workflows and incorporate accessibility across their media. Through her firm, she provides training, consulting, development, accessibility remediation services, and accessible templates for Word, PowerPoint, and Adobe InDesign.
She knows first-hand that accessible documents are possible without the need for agencies to incur immense budgets or labor to meet Sec. 508 requirements. It’s “doable” with targeting training, easy-to-use templates, and workflow management.
