The Abacus team combines the principles of user-centered design and usability as a part of user interface and application design. Applied to both the front-end and back-end development, these principles make it possible for us to develop appealing web-based applications that are accessible to people with disabilities and compliant with Section 508 requirements.

Section 508 requires that when Federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology, Federal employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by Federal employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. Section 508 also requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from a Federal agency, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.

Abacus’s 508 Compliance solutions meet these requirements, and our development for content and design, as well as our deployment strategies, adhere to the standards of this Act.
