For Immediate Release
Training Technologies is proud to introduce web surveys that adhere to strict guidelines for the display of web pages for the blind and visually impaired. SurveyTracker E-Mail/Web and SurveyTracker Plus E-Mail/Web have long offered attractive web survey design for its users and survey respondents. SurveyTracker 5.3 and all later versions include web surveys with an optional Accessibility version which is designed to meet the standards as defined by:
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
- Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act.
- The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
These web surveys are designed with a high contrast layout that is compatible with Assistive software and technologies such as Microsoft Windows accessibility features and screen readers such as JAWS by Freedom Scientific.
The Accessibility Survey is an optional alternative layout to the main survey as designed by the user in SurveyTracker. In order to create the accessibility version of the survey, the SurveyTracker user simply makes a few choices such as variable font sizes and contrast colors and their survey is automatically converted to the new layout. The user is then able to provide either version of the survey to the respondents through a direct link on a web site or via an e-mail invitation message sent through SurveyTracker containing one or both survey links.
A spokesperson for TTI stated, "As more and more government agencies requested and required accessibility surveys, we introduced this optional web survey variation to ensure that their respondents were all equally capable of responding to their surveys. We feel the ability to choose one or both of the available survey modalities is a real bonus to any organization that wants to - or is required to - provide accessibility surveys to the blind and visually impaired."
SurveyTracker is the advanced survey software that manages an entire survey process from start to finish. From survey design to the analysis and reports, SurveyTracker guides the user through a complete project life cycle. Full distribution methods are supported, with various versions offering paper surveys, three types of e-mail surveys, Web surveys, Survey-by-Disk, Kiosk surveys, surveys on a Network, Intranet/Extranet surveys, and scannable surveys. Customers can be assured that they will be able to distribute the survey to the appropriate audiences using the best method for their respondents.
