The purpose of the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template, or VPAT™, is to assist
Federal contracting officials and other buyers in making preliminary assessments
regarding the availability of commercial “Electronic and Information Technology”
products and services with features that support accessibility. It is assumed and
recommended that offerers will provide additional contact information to facilitate more
detailed inquiries.
The first table of the Template provides a summary view of the Section 508 Standards.
The subsequent tables provide more detailed views of each subsection. There are three
columns in each table. Column one of the Summary Table describes the subsections of
subparts B and C of the Standards. The second column describes the supporting
features of the product or refers you to the corresponding detailed table, e.g., “equivalent
facilitation." The third column contains any additional remarks and explanations
regarding the product. In the subsequent tables, the first column contains the lettered
paragraphs of the subsections. The second column describes the supporting features of
the product with regard to that paragraph. The third column contains any additional
remarks and explanations regarding the product.

Supporting Features
Remarks and explanations
Regarding Sharp imaging (one of the functions of Sharpdesk® document management software), some mouse commands do not have a corresponding keyboard command. (ex. range specification of image data). (a) When software is designed to run on a system that has
a keyboard, product functions shall be executable from a
keyboard where the function itself or the result of
performing a function can be discerned textually.
Supports
Regarding PAU5 almost all buttons and links can be focused using the tab key and selected using the space key or the enter key. And almost all results can be discerned textually. All buttons and links can be focused using keyboard in PRINTER DRIVER/ Printer Status Monitor. *Note that PAU5 is a Web application and thus the details of behavior of the UIs ultimately depend on the browser. (The same goes for the other items.)
(b) Applications shall not disrupt or disable activated
features of other products that are identified as accessibility
features, where those features are developed and
documented according to industry standards. Applications
also shall not disrupt or disable activated features of any
Supports
operating system that are identified as accessibility features
where the application programming interface for those
accessibility features has been documented by the
manufacturer of the operating system and is available to the
product developer.
Sharpdesk software runs on Microsoft™ OS and utilities. PRINTER DRIVER/ Printer Status Monitor are not designed to disrupt or disable other functions by design. PAU5 is not designed to disrupt or disable other functions by design.
If the focus changes, the target will change in some ways. Ex. the frame color will change if a thumbnail is focused. The text will be bold if focused. (c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus
shall be provided that moves among interactive interface
Supports with elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be
Limitations programmatically exposed so that Assistive Technology can
track focus and focus changes.
If the focus changes, the target will change in some ways. Ex. the frame line will change if an icon button is focused. Regarding PAU5 in all cases, the location of the focus is clearly indicated on the screen. Page 2 of 15
Criteria

Remarks and explanations
When Sharpdesk software displays image data, text describing the image is also displayed (ex. thumbnails are labeled with the name of each file in Desktop). The information conveyed by the image can be available in text in Printer Driver. (d) Sufficient information about a user interface element
including the identity, operation and state of the element
shall be available to Assistive Technology. When an image Supports
represents a program element, the information conveyed by
the image must also be available in text.
The information conveyed by icon of printer condition can be available in Printer Driver. But, the information conveyed by mimic image of MFP cannot be available in text in Printer Status Monitor. Regarding PAU5 almost all images have an alt attribute and display alternative text which is specified as a substitute for an image. *Note that some browsers don't display the alternative text.
If an icon, an indicator and an element have the same image, each of them has the same meaning in Sharpdesk software. (e) When bitmap images are used to identify controls,
status indicators, or other programmatic elements, the
meaning assigned to those images shall be consistent
throughout an application's performance.
Supports
When an icon, an indicator and an element have the same image, each of them has the same meaning in PRINTER DRIVER/ Printer Status Monitor. Almost all images have the same meaning consistently.
Sharpdesk software displays text contents using functions of the OS. PRINTER DRIVER/ Printer Status Monitor displays text contents using functions of the OS. (f) Textual information shall be provided through operating
system functions for displaying text. The minimum
information that shall be made available is text content, text
input caret location, and text attributes.
Supports
Regarding PAU5 text is displayed by using the text display function of the browser. It is assumed that the browser displays it by using OS's text display function. Page 3 of 15
