As electronic forms have become prevalent in corporations and government agencies, several accessibility standards have been written and agreed upon to enable end users with disabilities equal access to information and data. Various countries have different standards, but all have the same goal of making web based or electronic forms accessible. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognized the access to data and information technologies, including the Web, as a basic human right. K2 has tested the forms generated by K2 smartforms, which allows organizations to visually create no-code forms, against several accessibility standards. This document describes the test results and provides guidance on K2 features that can help organizations design forms that meet accessibility guidelines.
