Accessibility

Published 8 December 2017

How does Safari address accessibility?

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended in 1998, requires that certain electronic and information technology of Federal agencies be accessible to people with disabilities.

Safari is committed to make its online services and content accessible to the widest possible range of users and is continually working to improve its services to support accessibility for everyone. This is a complex and ever-changing landscape, forever responding to new types of content and technology challenges, market effects and best-practice solutions. The candid assessment of the United States Access Board, in February 2015, was that the existing section 508 requirement “does not adequately address what is meant by comparable access to information and data” when applied to electronic content products.

Safari conducted a review and assessment of its service using Section 508 standards. Safari’s Voluntary Product Accessibility Template ("VPAT") for both our CSS reader and our Queue mobile app outline how our service features aim for accessibility and how they may satisfy our customers’ own needs. To request a copy of our VPATs, please contact our support team. We hope this voluntary self-assessment is helpful, and please contact us if you have any questions or to offer comments on this work in progress.
