The provision of electronic documents for print-disabled persons is a key service of many institutions like libraries for the blind, educational facilities and other service providers for people with disabilities. Generally speaking all these institutions have defined a common internal workflow for providing these documents. A large amount of work falls on the task of restructuring the text and adding structural metadata for navigation. In this paper we describe the use of the commercial product docWORKS[e] by German company CCS and the challenges and benefits in terms of time and output quality we encountered by using this tool.
