U.S. Section 508 Accessibility Compliance

The purpose of the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template, or VPAT, is to assist Federal contracting officials and other buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial "Electronic and Information Technology" products and services with features that support accessibility. It is assumed and recommended that offerers will provide additional contact information to facilitate more detailed inquiries.

The first table of the Template provides a summary view of the section 508 Standards. The subsequent tables provide more detailed views of each subsection. There are three columns in each table. Column one of the Summary Table describes the subsections of subparts B and C of the Standards. The second column describes the supporting features of the product or refers you to the corresponding detailed table, "e.g., equivalent facilitation." The third column contains any additional remarks and explanations regarding the product. In the subsequent tables, the first column contains the lettered paragraphs of the subsections. The second column describes the supporting features of the product with regard to that paragraph. The third column contains any additional remarks and explanations regarding the product.

The tables and criteria used in this compliance statement are Voluntary Product Accessibility Template Version 1.3 from the Information Technology Industry Council website www.itic.org (template).

Section 1194.21 Software Applications and Operating Systems - Detail

Voluntary Product Accessibility Template

Criteria Supporting Features Remarks and Explanations
(a) When software is designed to run on a system that has a keyboard, product functions shall be executable from a keyboard where the function itself or the result of performing a function can be discerned textually. Supports All areas of the application have good keyboard functionality. Specifically, users can enter a menu navigation mode that allows toolbar button, command, and diagram object selection using only the keyboard. Users can also place shapes, connect shapes with lines, and access child windows using only the keyboard.
(b) Applications shall not disrupt or disable activated features of other products that are identified as accessibility features, where those features are developed and documented according to industry standards. Applications also shall not disrupt or disable activated features of any operating system that are identified as accessibility features where the application programming interface for those accessibility features has been documented by the manufacturer of the operating system and is available to the product developer. Supports The application works under high contrast settings and does not disrupt or disable other accessibility settings.
(c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus shall be provided that moves among interactive interface elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be programmatically exposed so that Assistive Technology can track focus and focus changes. Supports In all areas of the application, the input focus is well-defined and programmatically available.
(d) Sufficient information about a user interface element including the identity, operation and state of the element shall be available to Assistive Technology. When an image represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text. Supports All interface elements are well-labeled and the operation and state can be determined by assistive technology.
(e) When bitmap images are used to identify controls, status indicators, or other programmatic elements, the meaning assigned to those images shall be consistent throughout an application's performance. Supports All bitmaps are consistent throughout the application.
(f) Textual information shall be provided through operating system functions for displaying text. The minimum information that shall be made available is text content, text input caret location, and text attributes. Supports All textual information is provided by the operating system.
(g) Applications shall not override user selected contrast and color selections and other individual display attributes. Supports The application works under a variety of user selected attributes.
(h) When animation is displayed, the information shall be displayable in at least one non-animated presentation mode at the option of the user. Supports Any animation that is used is in addition to non-animated information.
(i) Color coding shall not be used as the only means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element. Supports Color coding is not the only means of displaying information. For example, simulation trace mode indicates transaction states textually in the Transactions window in addition to color coding in the diagram as a process simulates.
(j) When a product permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings, a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels shall be provided. Supports The application allows a user to adjust color and contrast settings in a variety of ranges and levels.
(k) Software shall not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz. Not Applicable This standard does not apply because this application does not use flashing or blinking items. The display rate of any animation that is used is entirely controlled by the user.
(l) When electronic forms are used, the form shall allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues. Supports All form elements are well labeled and sufficient instructions are provided.
 

Section 1194.31 Functional Performance Criteria – Detail

(a) At least one mode of operation and information retrieval that does not require user vision shall be provided, or support for Assistive Technology used by people who are blind or visually impaired shall be provided. Supported The application supports assistive technology such as the JAWS screen reading application.
(b) At least one mode of operation and information retrieval that does not require visual acuity greater than 20/70 shall be provided in audio and enlarged print output working together or independently, or support for Assistive Technology used by people who are visually impaired shall be provided. Supported The application supports assistive technology such as the JAWS screen reading application. Also supports operating system accessibility modes such as large fonts and large toolbar icons.
(c) At least one mode of operation and information retrieval that does not require user hearing shall be provided, or support for Assistive Technology used by people who are deaf or hard of hearing shall be provided Non-applicable No audio is used by the application.
(d) Where audio information is important for the use of a product, at least one mode of operation and information retrieval shall be provided in an enhanced auditory fashion, or support for assistive hearing devices shall be provided. Non-applicable No audio is used by the application.
(e) At least one mode of operation and information retrieval that does not require user speech shall be provided, or support for Assistive Technology used by people with disabilities shall be provided. Non-applicable No speech input is required by the application
(f) At least one mode of operation and information retrieval that does not require fine motor control or simultaneous actions and that is operable with limited reach and strength shall be provided. Supports All areas of the application have reasonable accessibility using either keyboard or mouse.
