|IT Accessibility Laws and Policies
The Executive Office of Health and Human Services is committed to making the Virtual Gateway accessible to all users. The Virtual Gateway is comprised of multiple business applications that support different user populations. Vendors who provide software development services for Virtual Gateway applications are required to deliver code that is compliant with the Commonwealth’s Web Accessibility Standards 2.0. These standards are compliant with Section 508 Guidelines and several elements of World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) web content accessibility guidelines. Additionally, as specific areas for improvement in the system's usability are discovered, software enhancements to address the most significant of these areas will be undertaken.
