CoreFiling fully complies with the electronic and information technology accessibility requirements in Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act.
CoreFiling software runs on systems using a version of the Microsoft® Windows® operating system and fully integrates with the Accessibility Resources that are built into Windows. These resources fulfil the criteria for § 1194.31 Functional Performance Criteria. Windows Accessibility Resources include the following features:
- Magnifier – Enlarges a portion of the screen for better visibility.
- Narrator – Reads on-screen text, dialog boxes, menus, and buttons aloud if speakers or a sound output devices is installed.
- On-Screen Keyboard – Displays a keyboard that is controlled by a mouse or switch input device.
- Speech Recognition (Windows Vista only) – Recognizes spoken input commands.
Windows operating systems fully support compatible speech recognition and Braille output applications available from third-party vendors. CoreFiling software running on a Windows operating system should also be compatible with these applications.
Those CoreFiling products which run on Linux or Macintosh benefit from similar accessibility applications in those operating systems.
|Decimate®||The interface for Decimate runs entirely in a browser and is fully accessible to screen-reading tools and magnifiers. We consider it to be fully compliant.|
|Magnify®||Support for the use of screen-reading tools in Magnify is not complete, although there are workarounds that allow them to obtain all the information displayed in the product, as follows:|
|The display of calculation consistency in the Calculation Inspector and the data displayed in the Tables are not directly accessible to screen-reading tools and should be obtained by using “Export HTML” and viewing the resulting output in a browser. This is not easy to use and remediation is planned in a future release.|
|The Checklist feature uses icons to show status. Users of screen-reading tools should use the “View Issues” menu option to display the full details of items in review and failed tests in the Issues panel. Remediation is planned in a future release.|
|True North® server products||These products do not include graphical user interfaces. Accessibility standards do apply to the documentation, however, and this is fully browser-viewable and therefore compliant.|
|SpiderMonkey®||Undergoing VPAT review.|
