HiSoftware announces Accessibility Foundation Module

HiSoftware just announced their AFM (Accessibility Foundation Module). http://www.hisoftware.com/products/CS_AFM.html.

“The optional Accessibility Foundation Module (AFM) provides users with a set of tools to create an accessible platform/framework for a SharePoint portal or intranet site. AFM is integrated into the Compliance Sheriff offering to provide a more complete and easy-to-deploy method of addressing SharePoint framework accessibility. The most significant advantage of AFM is the enterprise-friendly installation method that allows a SharePoint Server Administrator to easily apply a master configuration to multiple SharePoint Applications.”

I was never really a fan of the “completeness” of HiSoftwares Accessibility Kit for SharePoint. The ideas were good, but the implementation seemed incomplete to me. I did use their ideas and extend that kit for accessible SharePoint projects. But, could never use it out-of-the-box and the amount of work involved was always very high. Hopefully this new Module is more of an out-of-the-box approach to accessibility (I’d rather pay vs build for this).

I don’t know too much about the details of this Kit yet, but as soon as I get my hands on it I will post my thoughts.

    Greg – I would welcome the opportunity to take you through HiSoftware’s Accessibility Foundation Module and how we have worked with a few key pilot accounts on making their SharePoint platform compliant.

    Please email me some times to review.
