END OF DOCUMENT
Taken from www.section508.gov - the US Government's 508 Compliance website...
"Section 508 generally requires Federal agencies to ensure that their procurement of EIT takes into account the needs of all end users - including people with disabilities. Doing so enhances the ability of Federal employees with disabilities to have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to others. Similarly, agency procurement of accessible EIT enhances the ability of members of the public with disabilities who are seeking information or services from a Federal agency to have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to others. Comparable access is not required if it would impose an "undue burden" on the agency. If an agency invokes the undue burden exception, the statute requires the information and data to be provided to individuals with disabilities by an alternative means of access."
"The goal of section 508 is that [Electronic and Information Technology (EIT)] be compatible with assistive technology. In some cases, the standards require that the acquired EIT be readily usable without the need for assistive devices. For example, products covered by section 1194.25, Self Contained, Closed Products, must have the access features built into the product. These products, such as information kiosks, copiers, or other similar products that do not permit a user to install or connect assistive technology, must be designed so that an end user can operate the product, without having to modify it. Also, multimedia presentations that require captioning and descriptive video, must have these features built into the product, as it is impractical to expect end users to add on their own captions or descriptions. However, for most products -- such as software, web pages, and computers -- achieving compatibility with assistive technology is the goal of the standards."
CyberSoft, and all it's websites and browser-based products, adhere to the regulations governing Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which require computer software products developed by (or for) any federal agencies to be designed for equal accessibility by anyone with a vision, hearing, or motor skill disability - we have taken measures to identify any and all possible accessibility issues that may arrise and have included features in our website allowing easy navigation with assistive technology. CyberSoft websites are tested monthly using SortSite to fully implement the U.S. Access Board's final accessibility standards for electronic and information technology covered by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (primarily §1194.22).
TAA refers to the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (19 U.S.C. §§ 2501–2581), which is intended to foster fair and open international trade. The TAA requires that products must be either produced or undergo "substantial transformation" within the United States or a designated country (as listed in FAR 25.003).
CyberSoft's VFind Security Toolkit (VSTK) is entirely developed, produced, and manufactured within the Unite States of America, therefore making it fully compliant with TAA guidelines
