Boston Accessibility Roundtable 7/10 Meeting

We will hold a roundtable discussion of VPATs (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) that will cover what they are, common challenges organizations face with them, and best practices for them.  We expect this will quickly expand to cover other interesting aspects of VPATs.  Bringing their experiences and perspectives on VPATs to the discussion will be Sarah Bourne from the State of Mass. and Ken Kipnes from Oracle.  Kathy Wahlbin will contribute her perspective as an independent auditor.

 

We know this will be an interesting topic and expect a lively discussion.  We hope to see you there!

    I thought this was an excellent meeting. It was great to see the range of experiences people have, all essentially doing the same thing, and to dig in a little bit more into the details than we sometimes have time to do.

    Learned a lot about the VPAT system.

    P.J., it has been my practice to fill out both sections for a web-based APPLICATION, especially since[masked](a) is the only guideline that pertains to keyboard accessibility. There is some overlap between[masked] and[masked], but since[masked] pertains to software applications, I believe it pertains to web-based. In fact, even for web-based pages, there is a case to be made for some of[masked], especially[masked](a).

    In a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template), that is.

    When evaluating a web-based application, do you fill out Section[masked] (Software Applications and Operating Systems) as well as Section[masked] (Web-based Internet information and applications)?
