, a leading provider of scanning and digitization services to government and industry, is proud to announce it is one of a few companies in the industry with a team fully dedicated to providing accessibility and Section 508 services.
Included is a staff of individuals with disabilities who use assistive technology to provide real-world testing of remediated material, to ensure it is accessible, usable and compliant.
"Our experience has shown the use of assistive technology (AT) testers who are visually impaired provides the most complete and accurate test of a document's accessibility," says Shelby Tudor, Accessibility Services Program Manager for VASTEC. "When our employees with disabilities are able to find the information they need in accordance with Section 508 regulations, then we are assured the document is compliant."
VASTEC also offers VASTEC Verified certification to electronic information that meets accessibility standards. In instances where remediation is necessary an audit will identify each instance of non-accessibility, with the data then repaired to fix all required issues.
Accessibility is just part of the firm's capabilities. VASTEC is a full service digitization company providing scanning and data transformation services to a number of Federal agencies, including Section 508 services to the Social Security Administration, Veterans Health Administration, the IRS, and the U.S. Government Printing Office.
