We believe your online forms should be powerful, flexible and bring real value to your organization. They should also perform well on any device and complement any site’s design.

Of course, your forms can only achieve these goals when they’re equally available to all internet users.

This is why we’re always working to ensure that everyone, regardless of any physical limitations or other challenges they live with, can enjoy a great experience from your Cognito forms.

To help you make your forms more accessible, and to help you comply with current Section 508 requirements and meet WCAG 2.0 standards, we’ve recently introduced some new features and functionality.

Your users will now experience:

  • Enhanced readability
  • Increased compatibility with screen readers
  • High contrast toggles
  • Expanded functionality for keyboard-only users, improving:
    • Save and resume
    • Repeating sections
    • Check boxes
    • Field navigation
    • File uploads

We also have a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) available for anyone who needs it, such as those who work with schools, government agencies or non-profit organizations.

This is part of our ongoing efforts to make our form builder – and the forms you create with it – equally accessible to everyone.
