Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT)

Posted by Michael Gaigg

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a tool used to document a product's conformance with the accessibility standards under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

Download

Download VPAT in MS Word format.

Purpose

The purpose of the document is to assist vendors and buyers in assessing the accessibility of a product/website and formalizing a form of accessibility statement. This is not an Section 508 Certification, such a certification doesn't exist!

Format

From Information Technology Industry Council (ITIC): "The first table of the Template provides a summary view of the section 508 Standards. The subsequent tables provide more detailed views of each subsection. There are three columns in each table. Column one of the Summary Table describes the subsections of subparts B and C of the Standards. The second column describes the supporting features of the product or refers you to the corresponding detailed table, "e.g., equivalent facilitation." The third column contains any additional remarks and explanations regarding the product. In the subsequent tables, the first column contains the lettered paragraphs of the subsections. The second column describes the supporting features of the product with regard to that paragraph. The third column contains any additional remarks and explanations regarding the product."
