Understanding Accessibility Conformance Reports


The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) provides vendors with a template by which to document potential accessibility issues. From this VPAT, the outcome should be an Accessibility Conformance Report detailing a product's capabilities and limitations in meeting the accessibility standards. However, reading an accessibility conformance report, or just a VPAT, can be challenging when attempting to understand what are critical vs. minor accessibility issues.

This month's IT Accessibility Office Hours will continue our discussion of VPATs and accessibility conformance reports as well as explore what may be critical accessibility errors that will impact all people at the institution. We will discuss accessibility roadmaps, relevant timelines, and how to manage other issues when reviewing accessibility documentation from vendors.

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!
