Organizations today are dealing with Chaos caused by an explosion of web content in their websites, extranet and internet, emails, and social computing like blogs, wikis and forums. The biggest challenge is ensuring that all users regardless of their disability have access to the information you are providing. The objective is to improve the ease with which all users, including those with disabilities, can access and benefit from web-based services and information in accordance with section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d).
If you answer “NO” to any of these questions, this solution is for you:
- Does your organization currently have an automated tool to actively monitor/scan your web related content for 508 Compliance?
- Does upper management currently have visibility into 508 Compliance performance across the enterprise?
- Can developers/students/users/staff upload training or other materials onto the production server without being alerted that the content being uploaded is non-508 Compliant?
- Does your organization have a tool which checks for 508 Compliance rendering on mobile device including on IOS & android?
For Every Company with a Website Presence:
When website developers and content contributors follow the WCAG and country-specific compliance standards and guidelines for accessibility like Section 508, online information can be browsed by everyone, including people who use assistive technologies such as screen readers, text readers and voice-activated devices. There are three steps to achieving accessibility for a website or group of online documents:
- Verify accessibility compliance with Section 508 standards or WCAG accessibility guidelines
- Repair inaccessible website content
- Monitor all online portals across an enterprise for ongoing accessibility
