Conformance status

It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. SMART is fully conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Fully conformant means that the content fully conforms to the accessibility standard without any exceptions.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is to meet WCAG 2.2 Level AA conformance for Section 508, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria: Images of text are only used for decorative purposes. Re-authentication, after a session expires, does not cause loss of data.

Compatibility with browsers and assistive technology

SMART is designed to be compatible with the following assistive technologies:

  • Despite best efforts, accessibility may not work well in every combination of operating systems, web browsers, and assistive technology. Developers typically test their websites and mobile applications with common user environments, to determine compatibility. WCAG defines requirements for accessibility features provided by content authors to be accessibility supported. Communicating this compatibility expectation helps the user to determine if that is the cause for any issues they may be observing.
