Re: "marked" as compliant?

Yes... We're familiar with remediating documents for CMS. What we have not seen before is a file actually marked, in some way, as "compliant." Usually, we just remediate the file in Word and PDF and attach the accessibility report. CMS has never asked for a file to be "marked" otherwise; we did not get clarification on what they mean by this. We use the HHS and CMS checklists frequently. But those do not mention "marking" anything or having any sort of addition to a file.

Cms is part of HHS, so you should be making the files meet the checklists on http://508.hhs.gov. The link is near the bottom of the page.

We remediated a document for CMS, and then got this comment back. I've never seen this before. Anyone know what they want here? Lol

"If the materials are not marked as 508 compliant, CMS will still proceed with the established meeting but be unable to share provided materials electronically throughout the agency."

In the past, we've just included the accessibility report.
