Evaluating accessibility when buying technology.
Don’t leave accessibility to the end.
Be prepared for evaluating accessibility during procurements.
Electronic information and communication technology (ICT) products and services sold to government agencies must be accessible. Ensuring accessible ICT procurements means being confident in the information you have about the product or service being considered.
In Texas, two documentation tools are commonly used to evaluate the accessibility claims by vendors for electronic information products and services: the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) and the Vendor Accessibility Development Services Information Request (VADSIR).
Training for Texas agencies and universities.
Microassist’s new course, Understanding the VPAT Analysis and Determination Process, equips teams with a VPAT overview, strategies for making an accessibility determination and a guided exercise simulation on how to use this template driven methodology.
