As part of my team’s job supporting the BuyAccessible Wizard, we often get questions asking if a specific product complies with Section 508. This is a question we can’t answer. Remember it is the agency itself that must comply with Section 508, not the product or the services. When an agency is determining the requirements for an RFP, it must include the accessibility requirements. The BuyAccessible Wizard helps agencies to define their accessibility requirements, and we can point them to accessibility information or give them advice on how to find accessibility information. Ultimately it is the agency’s evaluation that will determine how well a product or service meets their requirements.
We recently created a New Guidance Document on Conducting Accessibility Market Research to help you find accessibility information on products and services.
