How accessibile is Telligent Community designed to be (In terms of http://www.w3.org/WAI/), has this been tested?
Also is the HTML and CSS been tested as being valid?
There has been some work done in terms of Section 508 compliance, but as of yet we have not done anything with WCAG 2.0.
Patrick, can you tell us anymore about efforts at 508 compliance for Telligent Community? This is a huge isue in DOD with all the injured service members returning from Afganistan and Iraq. It is also federal law. Thanks
Bump x2. We are legally obligated to meet these requirements with all of our web systems in the next 18 months. If the software can't do it, we may be forced to change platforms.
Which level of compliance are you requiring?
WCAG 2.0 Level AA, incorporating WAI-ARIA 1.0
We're reviewing this level of compliance internally. I recommend adding an idea to the Product Feature Ideation for WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliance. Since this thread originated, we have updated our forms to have labels, use semantic headers, and improved other semantic markup.
Thanks, Ben Tiedt! I've posted the Ideation here: https://community.telligent.com/community/i/ideas_and_improvements/make-telligent-community-accessible-wcag-2-0-aa-conformance
