Action Plan

Use Assistive Technology users for testing

Projects should use native users of screen readers, magnifiers, voice command software to test their applications.


The functional performance criteria (1194.31)is a very important Section 508 provision in the current standards -and the questions asked under FPC are simply whether some one who is blind can use the system, some one who has low vision can use the system, someone who is deaf , and some one with mobility impairments problems can use the system.


What better way to test it than with native users so we can get an accurate picture of the compliance level of the application.
