We have a section on Procurement in our standard administrative procedure (Accessibility Procedure - Draft PDF) at http://www.wtamu.edu/about/web-accessibility.aspx. We send potential vendors a blank VPAT available at http://www.itic.org/dotAsset/5644ecd2-5024-417f-bc23-a52650f47ef8.doc, and instructions for completing the VPAT, attached.

The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), Procurement and Resources, http://dir.texas.gov/View-Resources/Pages/Content.aspx?id=39#Procurement, have helpful vendor assessment questions. See their Policy Driven Adoption for Accessibility (PDAA) Assessment info at the link above.

Dear List,

We are starting to make sure that any new vendors providing any electronic technology, information technology and/or web technology product or service agrees that the Technology will meet the accessibility standards With these standards in place we wanted to know if you could share any guidelines and questions you ask vendors when assessing the accessibility of products.

While using a 3rd party captioning service certainly makes the
captioning and transcription process easier for video producers, sometimes
it is not a plausible solution (mainly due to cost). In this webinar, Ken
Petri, the Director of the Ohio State University Web Accessibility Center,
will walk you through the process of DIY captioning.

Hello All:

I've been using NVDA to test some pages and noticed some strange behavior
(I'm using NVDA with the latest version of firefox btw - ver 38.0.5). NVDA
does not read form labels when tabbing through a form, only when moving
through a form (out of forms mode) using the F key. Also, for some links,
when I press enter I get the context-menu, not an opening of the link.
Anyone have any insight on this?
