    Hi Kevin,

    Can you please provide us with more details about the AA Accessibility Standards you were referring to? We will be able to provide you with the appropriate suggestions and response once we know more.

    I did a bit of search and I this is what I come up with https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ Is this it?

    Thanks.

    Thanks Jonathan,

    That is indeed the standard.  Optus is moving toward this standard in a fairly aggressive plan toward compliance to this standard over this year.  The world consortium has set that standard.

    Kind regards,

    Kevin

    Thank you for the confirmation.

    Its certainly possible on a form by form basis - we  do not demand compliace for our users - but we do encourage them to download the form's source code in order to conform their forms to  virtually any standard.

    The idea here is the the form takes central stage as the product that needs to meet the WCAG 2.0 compliace.

    Right off the bat, the form might fail a compliance check -  but I believe standards are a guideline for "playing nice" rather than rules of exclusion.

    I'm not sure I can respond to the which level of compliace that can be achieved, I believe we would need to create a form to check for compliance.

    I'm not sure if this covered the scope of your questions, but do let us know if you have further question on this.

    Regards,
