This VPAT applies to only version 8.2.1. It does not apply to any versions of Siebel Core after this.
This VPAT has been superseded by Siebel Core 8.2.2

This VPAT summarizes the Siebel Core features common to all Siebel applications, both SIA and SEA, provided that they use the Core features unchanged (no custom UI controls). This VPAT is referred to by the VPAT's published for specific Siebel Applications. This VPAT specifically applies to the version of the Siebel Core at Siebel release 8.2.1 and any fixpacks issued for this release, unless the document has been updated. The following aspects are specifically excluded from this VPAT:

  1. Use of Siebel Tools for development, customization, or configuration.  Application customizations are not covered by this VPAT.
  2. Use of Administration screens within the Siebel framework (including anything for which SADMIN access is required)
  3. Use of third-party packages often configured together with Siebel e.g. Visual Mining Chartworks for production of charts. For information on Accessibility in these products, please contact the relevant vendor.
  4. Use of Oracle packages often configured together with Siebel e.g. Business Intelligence products. For information on Accessibility in these products, please consult the VPAT that specifically references the relevant product and version.
  5. Use of specific sub-systems which have not yet been made Accessible. These include (but are not limited to):
  • Siebel Remote - See VPAT 'Siebel Remote 8.2.1'
  • Siebel Charts   - See VPAT 'Siebel Charts 8.2.1'
  • Siebel Reports - See VPAT 'Siebel Reports 8.2.1'

Siebel's Accessibility features are available in several User Interface (UI) modes. Features for low vision and color-blind users are available in High Interactivity (HI) and Standard Interactivity (SI) Siebel UI modes. Screen reader support is only available when operated in the Accessibility mode.  This is based on SI mode with keyboard shortcuts enabled (SI+ mode), not on the HI mode.  Detailed documentation about Siebel's Accessibility features may be found in the manual entitled 'Siebel Accessibility Guide' in Siebel Bookshelf, which includes instructions for how to set up, configure, and use the features.

The specific browser and client environments supported at this release for HI and SI modes are documented in the Supported Platforms Guide.  For Accessibility mode they are as follows:

  • MS Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 8
  • MS Windows 7 with Firefox 3.6 or later
  • Apple OS X 10.5 or later with Safari 5.0 browser or later

The information below describes this product's ability to support the applicable U.S. Section 508 standards, subject to Oracle's interpretation of those standards and the remarks in this document.
