Accessibility Audit

VPAT and ADA Compliance

A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a valuable self-disclosing document that outlines how a product aligns with each aspect of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) criteria and provides insights into its level of accessibility status throug a Web Accessibility Audit and Evaluation with a completed VPAT Certification. Utilizing the VPAT allows you to assess your website's current Web Accessibility status.

WCAG serves as the benchmark for criteria requirements ensuring that your website meets the necessary standards. All federal and local government websites need to meet the WCAG conformance level of AA. Similarly, the European Accessibility standards EN 301 is necessary for the UK. Sometimes, a VPAT Certification is requested as part of an RFP or contract.

Simplifying the process

Simplifying the process of a Web Accessibility Audit and Evaluation and VPAT completion is crucial, as these tasks can be complex and confusing. Individuals designated to handle them may lack familiarity with conducting a web accessibility audit, guidelines, services, WCAG requirements, and ADA compliance. Attempting to complete the VPAT in-house can be challenging and often leads to oversight or misinterpretation of WCAG and Section 508 requirements.

To streamline the process, we highly recommend working with a third-party provider offering accessibility services. When selecting such a provider, consider the following:

  • Testing Method: Automated testing alone will not catch all issues, including manual testing validates automated testing and reviles issues not picked up.
  • Check Credentials: Certifications and Memberships help detriment level of understanding ada compliant components such as VPAT, WCAG, 508, and EU 301.
  • Check the Portfolio: Examine the accessibility of client's sites using free accessibility tools. Identify any potential issues and ensure the site was recently evaluated.

Our company has an in-house Certified Accessibility Developer who excels at handling various accessibility services. Our Accessibility Developer is a DHS Trusted Tester and employs the Trusted Tester process to evaluate the ADA Compliance status of digital content, including Accessibility Evaluation and VPAT documentation.

Furthermore, emphasizing accessibility can be advantageous when seeking support from shareholders or requiring additional marketing budgets. A VPAT can effectively demonstrate the accessibility status and highlight any existing issues, facilitating conversations with management or shareholders about the importance of becoming ADA Compliant. For government entities, compliance with Section 508 is a mandatory requirement, making Accessibility Evaluation and VPAT documentation essential.
