eQuest Offers Disabled Users the Ability to Post Jobs

Section 508 Compliance Is a Featured Benefit in eQuest's Enterprise Delivery Software

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - eQuest today announced that it has added support to its posting user interface to comply with Section 508 -- making job posting available and accessible to people with disabilities. Under the Rehabilitation Act in 1998, Congress required federal agencies to make their websites accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 was enacted not only to remove online barriers and encourage opportunities for people with disabilities but to also encourage innovation of technologies to achieve these goals.

eQuest acknowledges that proper compliance with Section 508 recommendations is important to its users with visual, auditory and mobility impairments. eQuest is committed to providing everyone within these affected groups accessibility to its job delivery gateway in the areas of user interface design. eQuest is currently used by many federal organizations and already conforms to many of the Section 508 accessibility guidelines and regulations.

According to John Malone, President and CEO at eQuest, "Our continued technology advancements underscore our commitment to provide our customers with every avenue possible to source talent through our easy-to-use, real-time job posting application."
