People with disabilities want to be independent; they want to do things for themselves by themselves. This is a fundamental issue of human dignity, which is enshrined and enacted in good corporate responsibility and legislation and also enabled by good business practice. Disabled people may be amongst your staff and will be an increasingly large proportion of your client base too.

The word 'accessibility' is used to cover all the technologies, standards and practices involved in making Information and Communication Technology accessible to the widest possible community, including people with disabilities such as vision impairments, upper limb disorders, hearing loss and cognitive disorders.

This report investigates Oracle’s support of accessibility. It considers:

  • The role and scope of Oracle’s product and services in the implementation of an accessible solution.
  • Oracle's commitment to accessibility both internally and in its relation to clients, other hardware and software vendors, legislation and standards.
  • Oracle's support of accessibility within its software and services offerings.

The report concludes that Oracle has an ongoing commitment to accessibility and its implementation with Oracle products and services.
