All, The recent example I received yesterday was for OWN Backup with OWN Data. Based on the communications, they were okay with filling out the HECVAT, but they thought the VPAT was a "customized questionnaire". They, like many others, claim no time to fill those out. Thanks! Karole Schroeder, CPACC ...

Laura, I inform them that the rule went into effect in June. However, we have a grace period for conformance with WCAG 2.1 AA until 2026 and 2027, depending on the total population we serve. I just didn't understand the calculations for the two and three years from publication. From ADA.gov: This ...

All, I was informing them of both deadlines, so they understood it wasn't just a request from TAMU-CC. We regularly get pushback from vendors that we are requesting responses on a "customized questionnaire". I was trying to correct them. Thanks!

Laura, I tried to send my email, but it sent me an error message for accessibility@cbord.com. Also, I had the small public entity deadline wrong. On the small entity compliance guide, ADA noted the deadline is April 26, 2027. Thanks! Karole Schroeder, CPACC Digital Accessibility Officer Office ...

I think we are all trying to figure out what are best practices. Maybe someone's institution is doing something that appears to be working while it is not working somewhere else. There are no wrong answers. Just trying to figure out where we are currently at. Question: Do you have dedicated WCAG/508 ...

Good morning! We've circled the issue of vendors not placing digital accessibility as a priority. Many of us are sending out emails to the vendors we are currently working with to notify them up the WCAG 2.1 AA requirements. I don't know if anyone has started bulk emailing their full vendor list. ...

Good morning! As always, I am trying to determine ways to better use my limited time as the only full-time digital accessibility officer at my university. A good portion of the time is reviewing IT procurement requests, which includes solicitation to the vendor, reviewing the ACRs, and also reviewing ...

Good morning, all! I feel like a broken record, but in case everyone has fresher minds in 2024, I will ask this group for their assessment (again?). We all have thousands of IT to review for compliance with standards in Section 508 and/or our respective state regulations (e.g., Texas Administrative ...

I always tell the vendor that it is public information and can be used in an audit, etc. If they have trade secrets in their VPAT, they are writing it wrong. They need to remove that content and submit a clean VPAT. Karole Schroeder, CPACC (she/her/hers) Electronic and Information Resources Accessibility ...

Unfortunately, if you read the disclaimers at the bottom of many of the ACRs, they do not claim any accuracy or warranties on the information they provide. Unless there is a legal mind on how they cannot add such disclaimers on their ACRs, I'm not sure a contract can force them to provide total or even ...

I'm interested in knowing how the badging technically works. What do you use to track training? Can it track: internally built online coursesinternal in-person, hybrid, or remote presentationsthird-party courses (e.g., LinkedIn Learning, Level Access)educational opportunities at conferences/webinars ...

I have gotten that on several contracts. This language often exists when the contract is for a specific set of users, library databases, or for research purposes. Meaning no one is going to terminate the contract – it is too unique to fail the sale. Or... if only a few of us make this point with the ...

As another Texas university, I concur with Margaret that TAC 213 (or more than half the chapter) is missing. I was trying to figure out if translation of language would be in scope for this document as well. TAC 206.71 affects many of us who support people with limited English proficiency, specifically ...

I have had trouble finding an ACR on social media platform sites. Often, I think these companies believe if they have an accessibility statement posted, maybe an accessibility account or profile, that those criteria suffice. Though the accessibility statement is often the response I get from companies ...

I understand, and that might be why Sortly's current message is they don't have a VPAT. I try to find contact information for the accessibility team, but oftentimes, the requester for the IT or the IT company's website only provide a sales / info / support contact. I've made a list for my university ...

Ray, I agree. The issue is more of making it a priority for the engineering team to fill out the VPAT. The legal team would advise them this should be a priority. I have dealt with several companies where the legal team doesn't know what the technical team knows. For example, if someone directs ...

Thanks, Doug. I sent requests to as many of the universities on the list as possible. I couldn't find contact information for one. I find it interesting that it isn't until certain points are addressed that they told me only enterprise customers could request a form be filed. I told them it does ...

Good morning, all! I'm trying to educate Sortly on the purpose of the VPAT. In my back and forth, we've reached the point where they are saying, "Sortly only completes forms for our Enterprise customers." Are any of you enterprise customers that can give them a quick ring for a VPAT? Thanks! ...
