Configuring the CSS for Section 508 compliance in BMC Service Management Process Model

The U.S. Federal Government Rehabilitation Act, Section 508 (Section 508), requires U.S. federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities.

Because BMC Service Management Process Model uses a cascading style sheet (CSS) to control the way its UI appears on the client's screen, it can override the accessibility options on the client's browser. You can, however, reconfigure the CSS to ensure that BMC Service Management Process Model uses the client's browser's options instead.

If you work for a U.S. federal agency or have some other reason to ensure that your environment is compliant with Section 508, you must perform the following procedures.

Note

For more information about Section 508 requirements, see http://www.section508.gov.

To configure the CSS for Section 508 compliance

  1. In the instDir\SMPM\Generic directory, open the default.css file in a text editor.
  2. Remove the following line from the body settings:
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
    This change ensures that the background color settings for a page appear using the color settings of the client browser.
  3. Delete the four rows containing the hyperlink color definitions. These rows start with following blocks of code:
    
    a:link
    a:visited
    a:active
    a:hover
    This change ensures that the hyperlinks appear using the color settings of the client browser.
  4. Remove the following string from the h1 (first header) settings:
    color: # 000044;
    This change ensures that the header text appears using the client browser's color settings.
  5. Remove the following string from the p (paragraph) settings.
    color: #444444;
    This change ensures that the paragraph text appears using the client browser's color settings.
  6. Replace the font size definitions in the headers and the paragraph settings as described in the following table.
    This change enables you to change the size of the text in the browser.
