Recently, the ExpressForms team undertook training in the areas of form usability design and Accessibility for Web Design, receiving certifications in the latter. Accessibility for Web Design Certifications was received by the Express Forms team as well as training in Designing Usable and Effective Forms.
Throughout the training, the teams focused on how to generate the best form experience for users while meeting accessibility standards. Over the past 60 days, the team has been updating currently in-progress forms and new form requests with the Best Practices learned. A plan to update the forms currently in production is being worked on and will be communicated to the affected agencies.
In addition, a Traceability Matrix for Express Forms will be provided after forms are created, tested, approved and deemed Production ready. Moving forward, an Accessibility Scan document will be presented to the agency for each form to verify the form has met all the accessibility standards and has received a passing grade.
