Accessibility and 508 Compliance
Team CMCI has proven expertise in attaining 508 compliance in (ICT) any information technology, equipment, or interconnected system or subsystem of equipment for which the principal function is the creation, conversion, duplication, automatic acquisition, storage, analysis, evaluation, manipulation, management, movement, control, display, switching, interchange, transmission, reception, or broadcast of data or information. CMCI has successfully delivered section 508 remediation and guidelines to LAUSD’s (Los Angeles Unified School District) EIT and at SBA (Small Business Administration).
CMCI believes in inclusiveness to promote diversity at the workplace and we understand that making our solutions 508 compliant will help people with disabilities eliminate barriers from achieving their goals.
Team CMCI successfully designed and deployed the SBA OCIO office pages which are 508 compliant. We also have extensive experience at the Los Angeles Unified School district (2nd largest school district in the USA), where CMCI implemented 13 web applications that meet 508 compliance. Team CMCI designed and developed web applications that are 508 compliant for DHS Customs and Border Protection. Our web developers and administrators provide 508 Compliance through functional validation to determine if systems support assistive technologies, such as JAWS, ZoomText, Dragon NaturallySpeaking and SortSite. Our 508 strategy strictly adheres to WCAG 2.0 and strives to make applications and electronic media conform to level A, AA and AAA standards. Using industry best practices, Team CMCI will thoroughly document its findings and recommend technical remediation for each identified issue. We provide an Audit Priority Plan which details a workflow for every application in a sequenced order of evaluation. We also provide a Corrective Action Plan, the goal of which is to provide cost- and time-efficient solutions with minimal UI changes. At CMCI we benchmark our recommendations with all applicable accessibility standards, for Section 508, Section 504 Title II, World Wide Web Consortium (W3C’s) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) including WCAG2.0 Level AA and WAI-ARIA compliance governance.
At CMCI we have developed a strategy to make both existing content and new content accessible and 508 compliant as explained below:
