Award Force accessibility features
Awards can be awarded to anyone, so we ensure our software works for everyone. Award Force is designed, tested and maintained with accessibility in mind.
Screen reader friendly
Award Force has been designed to be easily used with screen readers. Each element in Award Force has been labelled with screen readers in mind, ensuring the functional purpose is clear and the user is able to discern its purpose easily without the need for visually-assisted actions or visual prompts.
Award Force can be navigated completely from a keyboard. Established keys like tab, shift, arrows and the enter key will get you and your users everywhere.
Flexible colour options
Award Force’s default theme settings are specifically designed to provide sufficient colour contrast to all awards participants. You also have complete control over the colour scheme used. Award Force makes more than 40 elements available for colour customisation, so it will not only work well for all your awards participants—it’ll look good too.
Easy to read
Consistent font use and large section headings throughout the platform ensures legibility across all media and makes it easy for everyone to use.
Make videos more accessible with video captions. Caption files are supported across all uploaded video media. You’ll not have to download the videos for viewing either—they’ll play at the best quality possible, right from within the Award Force platform.
Award Force is compliant with the following standards:
WCAG 2.1 AA Standards
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is developed through the W3C process in cooperation with individuals and organizations around the world, with a goal of providing a single shared standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments internationally.
EN 301 549 Accessibility requirements
The EN 301 549 standard specifies a broad range of accessibility requirements applicable to ICT products and services (such as software, hardware and any other form of technology that a person may interact with) and applies them to procurement. When referenced within any procurement policy, suppliers must state how their product or service meets the accessibility requirements in the standard.
Revised Section 508 Standards
Section 508 accessibility standards contains accessibility standards that must be adhered to by all federally funded government agencies, and companies selling ICT (information and communication technology) to the federal government.
Download our Voluntary Product Accessibility Report
The VPAT is a template used to document a product’s conformance with accessibility standards and guidelines. The purpose of the Accessibility Conformance Report is to assist customers and buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial “Electronic and Information Technology,” also referred to as “Information and Communication Technology” (ICT) products and services with features that support accessibility.
