“We congratulate the Access Board for their work on this important refresh of Federal accessibility standards,” said Richard Salem, CEO of VASTEC. “Though the rule is only in the proposal stage now, VASTEC has long adhered to WCAG 2.0. We embrace the proposed rule changes, and look forward to expanding our services to those who need to meet the new guidelines.”
Furthering a commitment to best serve individuals with disabilities and help federal agencies and commercial enterprises better understand their Section 508 requirements, VASTEC is launching a complimentary document assessment program. Upon request VASTEC will analyze a sampling of documents for accessibility, and then issue an assessment report, at no cost or obligation.
VASTEC provides extra assurance to organizations working to comply with Section 508 requirements through the use of assistive technology testers on remediated electronic information. In this process individuals with disabilities have final authority on document approval, providing a real-world usability test.
This new procedure adds on to VASTEC’s proprietary suite of accessibility services, and will better serve the needs of people with disabilities as well as organizations that want to provide improved accessibility to information. This is increasingly important as demand grows in both the government and commercial sectors for Section 508 compliant data.
In a move to better serve clients with their Section 508 needs and improve the access by individuals with disabilities to electronic information, VASTEC announces the addition of Robert Salimbene as Account Manager for Accessibility Services
