Accessibility/Usability Solutions

Home / About / Accessibility/Usability Solutions

According to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, federal agencies are required to provide or develop technology that will allow individuals with disabilities comparable access and usability of info and data to that of their sighted coworkers.  

Discover Technologies has worked with blind and visually impaired workers to develop Access for SharePoint™ — a solution that will transform SharePoint’s usability, including website and collaboration accessibility. Need proof? Check out what the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) thought when they tested it. 

One out of five people has a disability that affects their use of the Web, and inaccessible websites are viewed negatively in social media and could face legal consequences. Enter Discover Accessibility Scanner, a tool that will generate an automated accessibility report for your website based on our Accessibility Management Platform. You can keep your organization’s website up-to-date by using the report to avoid accessibility missteps such as broken links and orphan sites. 

We know there is always a learning curve with new technology, so we offer 508/JAWS training as well as consulting and remediation services, if needed. This is about ‘usability’, after all!
