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.

Criteria Features Remarks and explanations
(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. a) Supports with exception b) Does not support a) All features of Cerego’s core study and quiz experience are keyboard accessible. The exception to this is a single “Regions” quiz type which requires the user to indicate a location on an image map using a mouse click or finger tap (on mobile touchscreen). b) Cerego’s settings, help, and content flagging buttons are currently not keyboard accessible. This is scheduled to be corrected.
(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 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. Supports  Cerego does not disrupt or disable any activated features of other products including the operating system
(c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus shall be provided that moves among interactive interface elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be programmatically exposed so that Assistive Technology can track focus and focus changes. Supports with exceptions Cerego’s learn app provides indication of the current selection focus in it’s buttons and multiple choice quiz options through screen highlighting and/or visible borders. Exceptions to the above are the non-core (non learning) elements of the appare the settings, help, and content flagging buttons in the learn app, or elements of the memory bank. Focus cannot be exposed programmatically at this time.
(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 represents a program element, the information conveyed by the image must also be available in text. Supports with exceptions All icons in the Cerego learn app have supporting text.
(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 All icons used to identify programmatic elements are consistent throughout the Cerego learn app.
(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 All information is provided through text in the web-browser and is not dependent upon the operating system.
(g) Applications shall not override user selected contrast and color selections and other individual display attributes. Supports Cerego does not override user settings. 
(h) When animation is displayed, the information shall be displayable in at least one non-animated presentation mode at the option of the user.

Color coding during quiz screen presentations (showing correct/incorrect) is in addition to other indicators of user performance. b) Cerego’s Memory Bank uses color coding to indicated level achievement for any given piece of content studied by a user, however this information is also available in text through the dashboard view of the Memory Bank.
(j) When a product permits a user to adjust color and contrast settings, a variety of color selections capable of producing a range of contrast levels shall be provided. Not applicable Cerego does not allow users to adjust color from within the learn app.
(k) Software shall not use flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements having a flash or blink frequency greater than 2 Hz and lower than 55 Hz. Not applicable Cerego does not utilize flashing or blinking text, objects, or other elements.
(l) When electronic forms are used, the form shall allow people using Assistive Technology to access the information, field elements, and functionality required for completion and submission of the form, including all directions and cues. a) Non applicable b) Supports c) Not Supported a) Cerego does not require form submission when integrated as a component of other learning products via LTI. b) Cerego’s “Sign in” form is fully accessible using assistive technology, including screen readers. c) Cerego’s “Sign up” form is not yet fully accessible using assistive technology, including screen readers. This is scheduled for correction.
