    Hello,

    We are a large school district in Illinois and we use your service on a regular basis. Recently, it has been mandated that our website has to comply with WCAG 2.0, Section 508 and the Equality Act 2010. This includes any services or vendors displaying content on our website. 

    We are in need of either: 1) WCAG 2.0 Support and/or VPAT statements regarding web accessibility issues; or 2) written confirmation that any information you provide on or through our website on or after March 1, 2017 is accessible to individuals with disabilities and compliant with W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (“WCAG”) AA.

    Please be advised that going forward, we will not be able to enter or renew contracts with third-party vendors that are not compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA.

    If you need examples of what the WCAG 2.0 documents and VPAT statements would contain, please let me know.

    Thank you.

    Any progress on this?

    What is your support email and/or mailing address so we can send you our official letter to third party vendors concerning accessibility? This letter is to inform vendors that all third-party content and applications provided or displayed on our website, or via links on our website, must be accessible to individuals with disabilities.

     

    Thank you.
