Government Product Accessibility Template for Web Application

Summary

· Column one includes all the Sections of the Standard that may apply to any deliverable. The total number of provisions within each Section of the Standard is shown in parentheses.

· Column two identifies the total number of provisions that typically apply to a deliverable of this type. Some of these may not be features of the vendor’s deliverable. Conversely, others not noted may be features of the vendor’s deliverable. If the deliverable includes additional features, the accessibility of these features must also be considered.

· Column three is for general notes about the Sections of the Standard. Some apply to all deliverables and some are specific to the deliverable.

· Column four is a summary of the vendor’s response to applicable provisions and additional deliverable features from the Sections of the Standard.

· Column five is where the vendor can note explanations for any of the preceding columns, e.g. there are differences between expected applicable provisions and actual product features.

I think you're confusing this community-run forum with Atlassian support. Even if someone is bothered to fill in this massive form, unless the answer comes from Atlassian support, you should not accept it as gospel.

AppFusions can assist you in US government sales - please send email to me direct - ellen@appfusions.com

Best,

You'll need to do that yourself, engage a partner (Appfusions have a track record in US government stuff if memory serves), or get Atlassian to do it.

Some of the questions on there can only be answered in the content for which you wish to use Confluence, so most of us can't help you - hence the hints that you need to do it yourself.

That's a lot of text. How do I fill it in?
1 vote

Because of our business model (self-service, no sales people) we generally refer these to an Atlassian Expert. If you open a support request, that's what we'll do.

Government employee that expect someone else to do your job? Have you tried finding this information yourself?

@Ivar,

That part is usually completed by the supplier (in our case Atlassian or an Atlassian partner). Obsiusly, mr Jones posted it wrongly on this forum, but ...

Anyway, I smiled today.
