DocMagic Introduces ADA-compliant Loan Documents
April 27, 2023
DocMagic Inc. recently added Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant mortgage loan documents to its document library. The new digital documents are accessible to visually impaired users and others with disabilities.
“Much of modern lending technology is designed to give consumers the convenience to access loan documents in the ways that work best for them,” said Dominic Iannitti, president and CEO of DocMagic. “It is imperative that our industry remain inclusive of all borrowers, and that we design solutions that are accessible to all. By creating ADA-compliant documents, we can continue to ensure that more borrowers are able to easily access, and participate in, the loan process.”
DocMagic’s ADA-compliant loan documents are dynamic, data-driven and designed to automatically identify and index document components during the document generation process. ADA metadata tags are applied to each of these components within the documents. These metadata tags function like HTML code, logically displaying a document’s organizational structure and content hierarchy. The metadata tags include content-level details as well as descriptive text for images, logos, etc. along with specific semantic instructions designed to make all text understandable via an advanced Text-To-Speech (TTS) engine that accurately translates on-screen information into clear speech through earphones or speakers.
To comply with the ADA, digital content must be free of barriers that may prevent those with disabilities from accessing information. Mortgage lenders that implement ADA-compliant documents promote equality and accessibility for disabled borrowers nationwide. Additionally, they help lenders mitigate legal complaints and resulting fines based on ADA standards. Ultimately, DocMagic’s ADA compliance project is a crucial step in the mortgage industry that creates a more inclusive and accessible world for those living with disabilities.
