Frequently asked questions about 508 Compliance:

What is 508 Compliance?

Section 508 requires Federal departments and agencies that develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology to ensure that Federal employees and members of the public with disabilities have access to and use of information and data, comparable to that of employees and members of the public without disabilities--unless it is an undue burden to do so.  

What does Revize do to ensure compatibility?

We have integrated accessibility functions directly into our software, making it easy for designers to make compliant sites.  While the ultimate design decisions in any web site is by the site developer, Revize® CMS supports using content in an accessible manner.

We currently support 508 Compliance in the following areas:

  • Allowing of readable documents without requiring style sheets.
  • Use of alt tags for images, a required part of the Revize CMS image manager feature.
  • No functionality that flicker with a frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz.
  • Allowing for the possibility of Text only pages that update along with the main content.
  • No required use of applets, plug-ins, or active scripting to allowing viewing of the site.
  • Allowing of industry standard electronic forms that allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.
  • Allowing users to skip repetitive navigation links.
  • Allowing users to be alerted and given sufficient time to indicate more time is required when using time based sessions.
  • Support is also provided in further topics not explicitly listed.
