General

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • All GlobalSCAPE products, all versions

DISCUSSION

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, open new opportunities for people with disabilities, and encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. The law applies to all Federal departments and agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Under Section 508, departments and agencies must ensure that employees and members of the public with disabilities have access to information and data that is comparable to access available to others unless an undue burden would be imposed on the department or agency.

The Globalscape Quality Assurance team uses the aXe browser plug in to check for section 508 errors in our client software. Any errors found are subsequently addressed by Engineering and retested.
