I am not familiar with CMS' checklists, but I thought they just used the
ones I mentioned. There's not a way to mark it as compliant. Normally the
appropriate checklist is completed, and maybe another party will double
check, but that is it. You might to check the file properties window, if
this is a pdf, and make sure it thinks that it is tagged. Other than that,
I would ask for clarification from the person or the 508 coordinator.
Your 508 coordinator knows me, tell him to email me at my work address if
he wants to.
