Accessibility

At Unicheck, we believe that Accessibility is intended not only for people with disabilities, but also for all of us who are grateful that there are no obstacles to using our abilities.

Our Approach to Accessibility

We strive to make accessibility a key factor, from the very early stages of product development to release. Our central accessibility team is authorized to monitor the availability status of Unicheck products and coordinate training, testing and consulting on accessibility issues. Product teams are trained to help incorporate accessibility into product design and release. We also strive to develop relationships with various users and protection groups in order to get feedback.

Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT)

To educational institutions, companies and government agencies have been easier to comply with accessibility standards, we provide transparent information about how our products currently work for people with disabilities. We offer the following voluntary product accessibility templates (VPAT). This document is a tool that administrators and decision-makers can use to evaluate Unicheck conformance with the accessibility standards under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Act WCAG 2.0 AA Standards. We will continue to update this site as additional VPAT documentation becomes available.

SECTION 1194.21 SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS AND OPERATING SYSTEMS – DETAIL VPAT™ VOLUNTARY PRODUCT ACCESSIBILITY TEMPLATE®

CRITERIA SUPPORTING FEATURES REMARKS AND EXPLANATIONS
(a) When software is designed to run on a system that has a keyboard, product functions shall be executable from a keyboard where the function itself or the result of performing a function can be discerned textually. Supports We strive to make sure all sections of Unicheck can be navigated and controlled with only a keyboard.
(b) Applications shall not disrupt or disable activated features of other products that are identified as accessibility features, where those features are developed and documented according to industry standards. Applications also shall not disrupt or disable activated features of any operating system that are identified as accessibility features where the application programming interface for those accessibility features has been documented by the manufacturer of the operating system and is available to the product developer. Supports Unicheck does not interfere with any operating system or browser shortcuts. Accessibility features such as sticky keys, magnifiers, screen readers, cursor sizes and virtual keyboards are not disabled or disrupted by Unicheck.
(c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus shall be provided that moves among interactive interface elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be programmatically exposed so that Assistive Technology can track focus and focus changes. Supports Where possible, Unicheck uses default browser focus styles. Where those styles are overridden, Unicheck provides distinct focus styles.

When an image represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text. Supports Provided by the browser.
(e) When bitmap images are used to identify controls, status indicators, or other programmatic elements, the meaning assigned to those images shall be consistent throughout an application's performance. Supports Unicheck uses icons to help depict the purpose of certain interface elements, such as "+" add buttons. The use of these icons is consistent throughout the site. Whenever a single graphic is used, such as a lone "+" graphic, alt text or CSS text replacement is used to enable screen readers to read the purpose of the link/button to the user.
(f) Textual information shall be provided through operating system functions for displaying text. The minimum information that shall be made available is text content, text input caret location, and text attributes. Supports Provided by the browser.
(g) Applications shall not override user selected contrast and color selections and other individual display attributes. Not applicable
(h) When animation is displayed, the information shall be displayable in at least one non-animated presentation mode at the option of the user. Not applicable
(i) Color coding shall not be used as the only means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element. Supports Unicheck does not use color alone to distinguish the importance of a visual element.
(j) When a product permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings, a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels shall be provided. Supports The interface of Unicheck has been styled with CSS to comply with Section 508's contrast and color settings.
(k) Software shall not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz. Supports Unicheck does not use flashing or blinking text.
(l) When electronic forms are used, the form shall 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. Supports Unicheck and all forms in the application work well with screen readers such as JAWS or VoiceOver.
