3 good reasons for Governikus DATA Boreum

Almost completely accessible user interface

Accessible test protocol and near accessibility of the application.

Multiple signature options

Setting visible signature fields in PDF documents anywhere in the document is possible (for multiple people).

Broad support

All legally relevant standards, formats and profiles according to ETSI.

Almost completely accessible user interface

The Governikus DATA Boreum application has an almost completely accessible user interface. Although the user interface has changed visually with new graphics, the user guidance is very closely based on Governikus Signer. This ensures a steep learning curve when switching from Governikus Signer to DATA Boreum. If you have already used Governikus Signer, Governikus DATA Boreum will not puzzle you.

The user interface has been thoroughly revised with regard to accessibility requirements. You can use screen readers and a Braille display. All GUI elements are accessible via keyboard navigation and with keyboard shortcuts, and the user interface is zoomable.
