Accessibility Guides & Resources
Accessibility at CBORD
CBORD is committed to building applications that are accessible to all users regardless of individual capabilities. We are enhancing our software to create comparable experiences for all walks of life.
Software under active development is being built to accepted standards for web and mobile accessibility for our users.
- Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA
- United States Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Section 508 standards
All new applications built by CBORD undergo testing to demonstrate these standards. Requests for accessibility enhancements outside of the original scope are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We will also review requests for products that have not been evaluated and given a VPAT below on a case-by-case basis.
CBORD recognize that there will be on-going updates to the global accessibility standards. As new technologies emerge, we will continue to look for new ways to meet these standards and support users of all abilities in a proactive manner. To ensure the compliance with these standards on an on-going basis, CBORD employs the following as a general practice:
- Issuance of Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates (VPAT) for key software platforms
- On-going training on accessibility testing and software design
- Use of automated accessibility testing tools to validate compliance with the above standards
Our developers and software test engineers are staying on top of the latest techniques for writing accessible applications. We share information across the teams internally and work with our 3rd party vendors to implement accessibility in our latest technology platforms.

Our Development Approach
CBORD continues to build for accessibility in our engineering and design process. We aim to use this process to release products meeting the requirements set forth in Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 AA documentation and enable users of all capabilities to use them. We are approaching this by:
Accessibility Common Components
CBORD’s development teams have been working collaboratively to create a central library where we store common screen controls that have been created to exude these standards of accessibility inherently. Each product team will determine when it is right to adopt these standard controls as part of their roadmaps.
Ongoing Training for Engineers
Our developers and software test engineers are staying on top of the latest and greatest techniques for writing accessible applications. We share information across the teams internally and work with our accessibility researchers to implement accessibility solutions in our latest technology platforms.
