Make surveys accessible to all by enabling 508 compliance settings

Section 508 QuestionPro

When it comes to reaching the widest respondent audience, QuestionPro has all the tools you need to ensure you can capture insights from your inclusive respondent group.  We have made our surveys Section 508 AND WCAG2 compliant. Section 508 is a United States federal law mandating that all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by the federal government be accessible to people with disabilities.

Often left out of surveys, enabling these compliance settings will give people with disabilities the opportunity to share feedback that can result in changes that benefit them and others alike.

Setting up the surveys compliant with Section 508 or WCAG2 standards

  • Click on the User Profile icon located on the top right corner of the QuestionPro tool
  • In the drop-down menu click on Compliance
    Under the compliance tab, click on the Accessibility icon
  • Switch the Section 508 Compliance and move toggle to ON
