4.8 Section 508 Compliance Summary

Section 508 requires that Federal agencies’ electronic and information technology is accessible to people with disabilities. Operations Center solutions strive to provide a Web Dashboard that is accessible to every person, including people with disabilities.

Section 508 defines 16 Web Standards (1194.22 A-P) and 12 Software Standards (1194.21 A-L). The majority of Operations Center Dashboard portlets are evaluated against all 16 Web standards and only 2 Software standards (as the other Software Standards are not applicable).

The 508 compliance and compatibility for Operations Center Dashboard components are outlined in Table 4-9.

* Only three of the Operations Center Dashboard portlets have failed to qualify for compliance, being non-compliant in only 1 or 2 accessibility items out of the 14 applicable items.

Our products are constantly being tested and improved for Section 508 compliance. Any non-compliance is logged into our tracking system to be addressed. For more information about our current compliance status, please contact Support.

Enabling 508 accessibility in the Operations Center Dashboard requires some configuration by the Operations Center administrator. For instructions, see Enabling the Dashboard for Section 508 Accessibility in the Operations Center 5.6 Dashboard Guide.
