This Generic Assistive Technology and Information Technology Environment List is intended for ITS43 vendors, the ITD Accessibility Technology Lab staff, and third party accessibility testers. All ITS43 vendors, ITD Assistive Technology Lab staff, and third party testers are subject to the following rules. Testers are only required to:

  1. Test contract deliverables against the most current versions of the operating systems, GUI desktops, applications, browsers, and assistive technology listed below, unless otherwise indicated in the RFR or RFQ by the procuring agency. Prior versions are referenced only to enable the vendor to anticipate potential user problems.
  2. Test the portion of contract deliverables that constitute administrator or end user interfaces (prototype or final), rather than back end system elements,  against the operating systems, GUI desktops, applications, browsers, and assistive technology listed below and
  3. Test contract deliverables against the most current version of the GUI desktops and applications listed below. This requirement only applies if an interaction between the IT system being delivered and the user’s implementation of such desktops and/or applications is a required feature of such system.
