Researchware, Inc.

Simply Powerful Tools for Qualitative Research

Does your software comply with Section 508?

Section 508 (see is a 1998 amendment to the Rehabilitation Act requiring Federal Agencies to ensure their information technology and services are handicapped enabled. Researchware's products (HyperRESEARCH and HyperTRANSCRIBE) support Operating Systems-based accessibility enablers such as the Magnifier, Narrator, and other standard accessibility utilities found in MS-Windows. Similar Operating System tools work with versions of our products on other platforms. While Researchware can not test is products with all the myriad of 3rd party accessibility software and hardware on the market, we expect that our applications would work with most 3rd party solutions. Our product User Guides are provided by default as machine readable text based help files, that can be read by any tool that can read other content in our applications. The User Guides are also provided by default as a PDF version with selectable text that can be read by any tool capable of reading PDF files. Our web site provides all primary content as text and we provide technical support by phone and email. We believe that these measures qualify our products as complying with section 508 requirements for government agencies seeking to purchase our tools.
