Chapter 9. Preparing Content for Captivate > Accessibility and Captivate

Accessibility and Captivate

Accessibility is not creating a Captivate movie that is easy to navigate or find. Accessibility is publishing a Captivate SWF that meets the compliance requirements in Section 508 of the United States Rehabilitation Act. This act essentially mandates that any work done for any form of government must meet accessibility standards. Captivate falls into that category.

To those of you who claim, “I am not doing any government work in the U.S.,” my response is, “You don't have a choice.” The bottom line is that accessibility is now entrenched in legislation, and you are going to have to make your work accessible to those with disabilities whether you choose to or not. The European Union is requiring that all sites be accessible, too. Educational institutions have the same requirement, and it is only a matter of time before business adopts accessibility standards as well.
