Information and Communication Technology (ITC) Products

SECTION 508 OF THE REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973

White House

If you are doing business with the government or maintaining electronic and information technology as a government entity, your digital content must be accessible and compliant to all end users. By law you must comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT™)

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT™) is an evaluation form that is used to verify the accessibility of an information and communication technology (ITC) product. This includes computer software, websites, emails and electronic documents. The VPAT™ uses Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to evaluate the product.

ICT products used by the Federal agencies will require specific accessibility requirements. To validate these requirements and the level of accessibility, a VPAT should be provided.

The VPAT should be completed by an accessibility expert that has the experience and certifications to ensure your product is correctly and thoroughly evaluated.

ADA Webguard® has a team of certified experts, including Department of Homeland Security Trusted Tester, that can assist you with completing your VPAT and achieving an accessible product.
