Software that is as accessible as possible for all users

Although it is mandated by Section 508, our compliance with accessibility regulations is driven by our belief that making our software as accessible as possible to all users – those with and without disabilities – is the right thing to do.

Overview

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is the precursor to what is now known as The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which was amended and strengthened in 1998, dictates that the “electronic and information technology” of Federal agencies must be accessible to people with disabilities, including employees and the public. For more information on Section 508, please see www.section508.gov.

Our Products

The accessibility standards outlined under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act are important to Dean Evans & Associates. Voluntary Product Accessibility templates are available for all of our products documenting their conformance to these guidelines. Our development approach strives to support the standards while continuing to update our software to keep pace with advances in technology by adopting the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative for Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA).

Our Website

While our corporate website is not technically covered by Section 508 regulations, we continue to fine tune the display of information, the navigation and other elements to provide users with disabilities with a completely obstruction-free experience.
