We’ll craft a statement describing the steps you’ve taken to address accessibility with Perkins Access, including the fact that you’re evaluating your products with native users of assistive technology. A good statement also addresses the fact that accessibility is an ongoing process, not a one-time fix.
A VPAT provides a detailed analysis of your conformance to WCAG accessibility standards. It’s important to complete this document correctly and to update it over time to reflect where you are in your accessibility journey.
Perkins Access can work with you on other accessibility statements as well, including those for UK and Canadian government accessibility regulations.
