SCORM, ADA, and Section 508



Hi, Question about how (if) SCORM relates to ADA (disability) compliance. I've been told that if content is SCORM compliant, it meets ADA compliance because it can be read by screen readers and other devices used by people with disabilities. Do you agree with this assessment?


Great question.  You have been told wrong.  SCORM compliance has nothing to do with ADA complaince whatsoever.  They are compatible, but having one says nothing about the other.  Section 508 is an alternate standard that does relate to ADA compliance, and many proposals will ask for both SCORM and Section 508 compliance, but they do not affect one another.
