NACCOP-AEGIS, LLC (“Provider”) works to ensure our CleryEdge software (“Service”) is accessible to as many users as possible. This Statement describes our efforts to accommodate users with visual, audio, and other access-related disabilities.
We are committed to ensuring the Service and its future upgrades conform with “Level AA” of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 and are striving to achieve “Level AAA.” In line with these goals, Service users should be able to:
- access content easily;
- see descriptions of images on the screen;
- interact with forms and tables;
- not worry about automatic media and navigation;
- change colors, contrast levels, and fonts;
- zoom in without the text spilling off the screen;
- navigate most of the Service using just a keyboard; and
- hear most of the Service using an up-to-date browser and screen reader.
Accessibility Improvement Efforts
Service accessibility is a consideration at all stages of our work. Automated and manual evaluations are conducted throughout our design, development, and quality assurance workflow. Remediation of accessibility issues is a high priority and we strive to perform it in a timely manner.
Despite our best efforts, some aspects of the Service are not fully accessible and therefore currently not in full compliance with WCAG 2.1 “AA” standards. Current limitations include:
- High Contrast: Navigation links in the Service’s left-hand navigation menu are not clearly visible in high contrast mode.
- Browser Zoom: Navigation links in the Service’s left-hand navigation menu truncate when browsers are zoomed to more than 200%. At 400% browser zoom, left-hand navigation menu bars truncate and both horizontal and vertical scroll bars display.
- Keyboard: The “tab” key cannot be used in the text editor on some Service pages to select and use formatting elements (e.g., bold, italic, strikethrough. etc.).
- Screen Reader: The search edit field associated with data tables is unnecessarily tagged in tables and cannot be removed from them. The calendar tool used on some Service pages is not properly tagged and accessible by screen readers, which results in them announcing the term “blank” repeatedly.
We’ve assessed the cost of remediating these limitations and determined that correcting them now would constitute an undue burden within the scope of Section 508 accessibility regulations.
