Topic: Accessibility Documentation and VPATs

Many vendors utilize the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) to document the accessibility features and capabilities of their products. But is the VPAT an accurate measurement of a product’s accessibility? Can such documentation provide useful guidance and information regarding the level of accessibility or conformance with accessibility standards?

This month’s IT Accessibility Office Hours will discuss the VPAT and how it may be a starting point in collecting information regarding product accessibility. We will be review the different VPAT versions, the standards used as part of the template, and strategies in using the VPAT to determine a product’s level of accessibility conformance.

The IT Accessibility Office Hours offer the opportunity to ask questions and share best practices regarding institutional web and IT accessibility issues. Audience participation is welcome!
