(n) When electronic forms are designed to be completed on-line, the form shall allow people using assistive technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues.
Because Estrada provides form functionality as part of its features, this guideline is solved automatically. Estrada automatically adds labels and descriptors to forms.
(o) A method shall be provided that permits users to skip repetitive navigation links.
Instead of providing such method, make sure that through the use of absolute positioning, the reading order of the template is correct. Absolute positioning avoids the problem of repetitive links altogether.
(p) When a timed response is required, the user shall be alerted and given sufficient time to indicate more time is required.
In your template development, avoid the need for timed response. If the use of timed response is unavoidable, consult with Estrada technology developers to create and implement the appropriate model.
If you prefer, you may contract with the Estrada Professional Services Group to have our designers and programmers develop your site’s template(s) for you, so that it addresses all necessary Section-508 accessibility standards.
