Voluntary Product Accessibility Template® (VPAT®) is a table containing information regarding how an information and communications technology (ICT) product or service conforms with Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. § 794 (d)). Section 508 provides guidelines for rendering ICT accessible to, and therefore usable by, people with limited capacities to see, hear, or exercise muscular control (aka disabilities). Although originally intended as a tool to facilitate government market research on ICT with accessible features, the VPAT has come to be viewed by the wider procurement community as an accessibility conformance report or ACR.
The rows of a VPAT table address different aspects of ICT products. The rows are grouped into sections addressing, for example, whether a mouse or keyboard are required to control the software; when images or colors are needed to understand the software; when text alternatives to images are available; and so forth. A VPAT table has three columns. The first column identifies subsections of Section 508, the second characterizes features of the product or site relevant to that subsection, and the third column has remarks and explanations.
