Software or web accessibility is a legal requirement for any software systems to be accessible to all kinds of users, but there is also a strong business case for ensuring that your software is accessible. UserLabAsia helps organizations achieve and sustain accessibility through accessibility audits and evaluation.
We help our clients through Accessibility audits to discover any accessibility barriers that are likely to arise during use, and recommend appropriate design solutions. The audit includes a test of compliance with nationally or internationally accepted guidelines and standards, such as:
- The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) from the Web Accessibility Initiative, and
- The U.S. Section 508 legislation
The purpose of the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template, or VPAT, is to make preliminary assessments of products and services with features that support accessibility.
UserLabAsia’s experts conduct UI testing using special needs assistive technology - software or hardware e.g. JAWS (Freedom Scientific) and Home Page Reader (IBM). Both are speech-enabled browsers to check if these are product and applications have features that support accessibility.
We help our client with creating the VPAT’s, which is standardized form that lists all of the regulations of Section 508 and based on the testing results.
