Most SMART products fully comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of the United States. Full details regarding SMART’s compliance with Section 508 are available at www.smarttech.com/508.
For example, prepare presentations for low-vision users using the SMART Board interactive whiteboard’s many helpful features:
Use the Zoom feature in SMART Notebook software to enlarge any section of the screen.
Use the Magnifier tool over any application to enlarge an area or an object.
Emphasize important information using the Highlighter tool.
Instantly enlarge any object using the Resize feature.
Play Adobe Flash files or other multimedia formats (such as .avi and .mpeg files in SMART Video Player) that incorporate sound.
Press directly on the screen during presentations to focus audience attention.
The interactive screen’s large size makes it easy to see your presentation.
The Sympodium L150 interactive lectern is not Section 508 compliant.
In 1998, the United States Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. Under Section 508, agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to the access available to others.
