Revelo Software, LLC (Revelo) has been approved to join as a member of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Led by web inventor Tim Berners-Lee and Director Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C is an international community that develops protocols, guidelines and standards for the web. Web standards that are presented by the W3C are developed by members for the W3C community, W3C staff and public works.
One area that W3C is involved in is digital accessibility, which is spearheaded by W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). WAI is responsible for developing technical guidelines, specifications, techniques and support tools needed to support accessibility solutions. W3C’s WAI ensures that businesses of all sizes are able to provide inclusive digital products to individuals with disabilities, including those with cognitive, visual, and hearing impairments. Major accessibility guidelines created by W3C include the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 created in 1998, WCAG 2.0 created in 2008, and WCAG 2.1 which was updated in 2018.
Revelo Software is a real-time software platform that is customizable to the automation of data collection, analysis, and reporting. Revelo is Section 508 compliant and conforms to NIST and FISMA security guidelines. Revelo Software has created a digital accessibility microservice, iAccessible, which is designed to detect, assess, and fix digital accessibility violations across a range of digital platforms through automation and manual remediation.
