SAP's Approach

SAP uses a phased approach to solution accessibility. When working to create accessible solutions, we first address the functions with the most demand — to bring maximum benefit quickly to the most people. We look for ways to incorporate accessibility into future releases and newly developed areas of SAP solutions. And we re-examine solutions developed before the introduction of accessibility standards and laws — developing updated versions of existing product components to allow accessibility.

To ensure accessibility of the SAP NetWeaver platform and the mySAP Business Suite family of adaptive solutions, SAP created the SAP Accessibility Standard. This software and Web-application standard is based on applicable Section 508 requirements and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) Priority A and partially AA. New development at SAP must adhere to this standard, which has been integrated into SAP's product innovation life cycle.
