Navigating VPAT 2: A Guide for Vendors

As the demand increases for accessible technology, software vendors are increasingly stepping up to meet buyers’ needs. But simply stating that your product can be used by people with disabilities won’t seal the deal.  

In order to demonstrate that a product is accessible, both vendors and manufacturers are now expected to document that it meets established guidelines by filling out a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT®). A completed VPAT is increasingly a procurement requirement—but even when it’s not, it’s a valuable competitive differentiator.  

Navigating VPAT 2: A Guide for Vendors offers clear instructions for creating VPATs using the most up-to-date format, VPAT 2. Request it today to ensure that you appropriately document your product’s conformance to accessibility standards.
