TMR believes that Section 508 is good for industry, government and, most importantly, for people with disabilities. It is the Law! We will support this effort by using Section 508 Compliance Standards to provide services to our clients with disabilities with the information, documentation, and support that is necessary. We will work closely with our Federal IT managers and follow technology and industry leaders to comply with §1194.41 and §1194.31. TMR will ensure that this information is provided to our end-user and in compliant with Section 508 Accessibility Standards.
TMR’s approach for accessibility standards falls under Functional Performance Criteria (FPC); Operable without vision, Operable with low-vision, and Operable without fine motor control. TMR documented requirements are closely related to technical requirements, and are therefore mapped accordingly. We are fully aware that there are different delivery methods of providing information to our end-users with disabilities; which are web and software based and broadcast or fixed-media (produced). That some compliance requirements, such as color independence, flicker restrictions, and form labeling appear under both the software and web technical standards.
TMR will provide the necessary support requested by our end-users with disabilities by providing at least one mode of operation and information retrieval: (a) Software: Keyboard functions (hot keys) in place of mouse functions; (b) Audio descriptions of visual images; (c) Audio Navigation; (d) User’s assistive technology such as Screen Readers on desktop; (e) Captioning: Visual Cues & Synchronized; (f) Software based Media Player; (g) Hardware - Captioning Decoder; and (h) Plug-In.
TMR will meet the challenge in providing 508 compliant support services to our clients and ensuring information is accessible to all end-users.
