Has Intuit published a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) for QuickBase yet? If not, when will this happen?

I see that you answered this question 3 years ago implying that you hadn't published a VPAT. (You stated that you were not section 508a complient, but didn't answer whether you had published a VPAT)

Here is a link to information about it http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/126552.pdf

Thanks!

This is a user forum where we help each other with the development of applications.  None of us can answer that question.



I suggest you go to quickbase.com and click on the Contact link.
Is it true that no other users of Quickbase have researched or are interested in this issue? Maybe I should rephrase it. Do any users of Quickbase know how easy it is to use Quickbase as an end user or as an admin, with a screenreader like Jaws or NVDA?

Using a screen reader with QuickBase would be an unmitigated disaster.
Thanks dandiebolt_QB_Pirate. As I suspected from looking at the markup.

yeah no aria
I just went to a whole conference on Accessibility and ARIA was not mentioned once. You can make a website accessible without ARIA. In some cases ARIA just messes stuff up if you don't know what you're doing. ex: role="application"

Yes but a site pursuing accessibility is more likely to have ARIA as it is earlier technology and QuickBase has only accidental ARIA attributes. I don't work in this area but I have attended the Environments for Humans' Accessibility Summit for years so I know what you are referring to.

Anyway it is an issue for QuickBase staff to address.
