Last updated on JUNE 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Convergence - Version 2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

There are software applications for low-sighted or non-sighted people which are able to translate a graphical interface into a more text-oriented version to facilitate text to speech.

JAWS is one such product and requires special descriptive "tagging" in an application to properly render it.  Communications Express (UWC) worked with JAWS, but Convergence does not.

Convergence needs to comply with:

ADA - American Disability Act
AODA - Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act
Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

Achieving Section 508 Compliance will allow people with disabilities to access Convergence through Assistive Technology, such as screen readers.  There is a set of requirements and guidelines enforced by Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act which is the basis for this request.

Will Convergence be compliant with ADA, AODA, and Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act?
