1 min read

SimplyCast complies with Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the Accessible Canada Act.

To comply, SimplyCast added features and functionality to its application to ensure accessibility.

Being compliant with these requirements shows SimplyCast’s dedication to accessibility for all users.

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, July 9, 2019 — SimplyCast, an ISO 27001-certified leader in engagement automation for organizations worldwide, complies with requirements in Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the Accessible Canada Act. These acts are federally mandated requirements to ensure areas under federal jurisdiction are accessible to people with disabilities.

“Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act is a very important requirement for American federal agencies to ensure any technology can be used by any employee, constituent, or staffer regardless of a disability, and the same can be said for the Accessible Canada Act,” said Saeed El-Darahali, President and CEO of SimplyCast. “Being able to comply with these accessibility requirements is a great accomplishment for us here at SimplyCast; we’re happy to be able to offer software that can be used at any level of government, by anyone.”

Section 508 was added to the Rehabilitation Act to address the workplace needs of disabled workers when it comes to the use of electronic and information technology. Section 508 regulations are designed to ensure equal access to any user, regardless of disability, to any federally affiliated piece of technology, such as a website or software.

The Accessible Canada Act came into effect in June 2019 and aims to have more consistent accessibility for all federally related areas, including information and communication technology. The Accessible Canada Act is applicable to federal employees and staffers as well as citizens accessing federal resources.

SimplyCast has been working toward an accessible product offering for over 18 months.
