From GCN: Accessibility awareness remains low as deadline approaches

The deadline for federal agencies to conform to the new web accessibility standards under the 508 refresh is January 18, 2018. Yet more than 87 percent of 430+ local government respondents to Vision’s 2017 What’s Next Survey said they have moderate, weak or no knowledge of these federal requirements. 

But not everyone is waiting until the last minute!

AudioEye has already aligned our patented Digital Accessibility Platform (DAP), the core of our Ally Managed Service, to automatically detect errors in alignment with 508 Refresh success criteria—in addition to the existing identification of WCAG 2.0 Level AA success criteria

Look for a big announcement coming soon, but DAP is ready to go with 508 Refresh. Are you?
