An audit for WCAG and Section 508 compliance typically involves a comprehensive review of a website or digital content to ensure it meets accessibility standards. The goal of the audit is not only to identify where a website falls short of compliance standards but also to guide the necessary adjustments to make digital content accessible to everyone.

Automated Testing: Using specialized software to scan the website for compliance with accessibility standards, identifying issues like missing alt text for images, insufficient color contrast, and lack of keyboard navigation.
• Manual Evaluation: Experts manually navigate the site using various assistive technologies (like screen readers) and check against WCAG and Section 508 guidelines to catch issues that automated tools might miss.
• Reporting: Compiling the findings into a detailed report that highlights compliance gaps and provides recommendations for remediation.
Remediation Guidance: Offering solutions and best practices to address identified issues, ensuring the website becomes fully compliant.

VPAT Reporting

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a document that provides a detailed analysis of how a product or service conforms to the accessibility standards under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, WCAG guidelines, and other international accessibility standards. It serves as a self-disclosure tool to inform potential buyers about the accessibility features of their products. VPATs play a crucial role in procurement processes, especially within government agencies.

Evaluation: The product is thoroughly evaluated against the applicable accessibility standards to determine how well it complies with each criterion.
• Documentation: For each standard, the VPAT includes a section where compliance is detailed. This can range from full compliance to partial compliance or non-compliance, with notes explaining the product's current accessibility features and any planned improvements.
• Transparency: The completed VPAT provides an honest, transparent account of a product's accessibility, allowing procurement officials and decision-makers to understand how the product can support users with disabilities.
• Updates: As products evolve and improve, the VPAT should be updated to reflect any changes in accessibility compliance.
