Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act needs federal offices to develop, procure, maintain, and use information and communications technology (ICT) accessible to people with disabilities. It applies to all such people, regardless of whether or not they work for the federal government.
While this amendment technically applies to the federal government only, it guides any organization that wants to make its technology more accessible.
QuestionPro helps you create surveys, polls, quizzes, and communities that are accessible to respondents with a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive ability.
Creating a survey compliant with Section 508 requires taking an in-depth look into how your questionnaires are designed.
Keep in mind the below points to make sure people with disabilities can access your surveys.
Use a survey theme with the right combination of color contrast and brightness.
Add alt text to your images, logos, and videos so that people with visual disabilities can interpret the pictures based on the text.
Keep questions and options simple and concise. Longer question text might make it difficult for the respondents to understand the questions.
Enable question tips to offer more information on the question.
