HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff Accessibility Module
Verifying Accessibility Compliance
The Compliance Sheriff Accessibility module empowers content managers to work collaboratively with online content developers and website architects to monitor and verify corporate standards for accessibility. The Accessibility module provides automated reporting to managers and developers to determine whether the information on any internal or external online portal complies with Section 508 and WCAG 1.0 and 2.0 standards.
Compliance Sheriff scans the complete enterprise online universe for over 172 accessibility checks such as images, forms, and dynamic content interactions, plus 17 Alt text quality checks. Thus both structured and unstructured content is verified for accessibility – webinars, corporate videos, multi-media presentations demonstrating product: all of it is covered.
- Section 508 Reporting: Tests files for accessibility compliance with Section 508 standards, and can report on Section 508 compliance.
- W3C® WCAG Reporting: Tests files for accessibility compliance with W3C WCAG 1.0 Priority 1-3 and WCAG 2.0, and can report on W3C WCAG 1.0 Priority 1-3 and WCAG 2.0 compliance.
- Government of Canada Web Accessibility Standard Reporting: Tests files for accessibility compliance
with the Government of Canada Web Accessibility Standard (replaces Common Look and Feel /CLF 2) standards.
- Alt Text Quality Reporting: When a page is tested for Alt Text Quality, the report cites Alt Text violations in each Web file.
If corrections need to be made manually, Compliance Sheriff provides an easy-to-read yet comprehensive report, detailing the exact locations of compliance violations so that developers can take corrective action. If there is an element that is questionable and requires a person to make the judgment call, the compliance software will send an alert directly into a manager’s email account.
The compliance management software then includes all test results in a History archive to allow the enterprise to monitor a project over time, answering any potential audit or litigation demands. Phases of a project can be tracked for compliance by author, time, date, department, and more. Developers and content managers can work collaboratively to manage their testing effort through shared Recorder databases.
Repairing Web Content
If Compliance Sheriff determines a website or online portal is failing compliance, fast, reliable repair is mandatory. HiSoftware goes a step further than just reporting on what's wrong. Using drill-down links provided in the report, it pinpoints the exact location of errors, highlighting them in the HTML code, and provides helpful links that tell you how to repair the content to make it accessible. This allows content developers to make repairs quickly.
