HERNDON, Va., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Discover Technologies, a unique IT services and software development company located in the Washington, DC area announced today the release of Accessible SmartForms™, which addresses the accessibility challenges within K2® smartforms™ controls and out-of-the-box K2 dialogs regarding Section 508 and WCAG2.0AA accessibility standards. Accessible SmartForms™ is Discover Technologies' second release of a software solution designed to enable workers who are blind or visually impaired to be more productive in the technology space.

"We are excited to launch Accessible SmartForms™ on the heels of Discover 508 for SharePoint™ in our ongoing effort to enable workers who are blind or visually impaired to be as productive as their sighted co-workers. When using Accessible SmartForms™ along with K2, all web apps you create will automatically be 508 and WCAG2.0AA compliant."  Malcolm Hyson, Discover Technologies CTO

The design of Accessible SmartForms™ enables screen readers such as Freedom Scientific's JAWS™ to describe the purpose, current state and usage instructions to blind and visually impaired users when using a K2 smartforms web application. The Discover Technologies solution supports 4.6.9 and later versions of K2 smartforms.

"K2 is excited that Discover Technologies has chosen to extend K2 smartforms with accessibility features enabling blind and visually impaired workers to participate within K2 centric solutions.   We appreciate Discover Technologies' effort in serving this market."  - Bob Maggio, K2 Global Channel Architect
