Red Hat digital accessibility statement

Making Red Hat accessible

Jump to section

At Red Hat, we believe that an open source approach leads to better, more inclusive experiences for all people, including users with disabilities.

We are working to improve the user experience across Red Hat® properties, including our products, services, applications, and digital communications. Our goal is to make them inclusive for as many users and devices as possible.

The power of the web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.

Our goal

Red Hat endeavors to follow best practices in accessibility, including WCAG 2.1 AA. While not all of our web content or applications meet the guidelines, we continue to identify areas in our efforts to improve digital accessibility.

VPATs and Red Hat products

Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates (VPATs) for certain Red Hat products can be found in the Government Standards section of our Customer Portal. Making accessibility a key factor in development helps to drive our success here, although we continue our efforts to improve accessibility across our software offerings.

Browser support

We also are committed to minimizing browser compatibility issues by following best practices, which include supporting recent versions of major browsers.

PatternFly and PatternFly Elements

We developed PatternFly and PatternFly Elements, our open source user interface (UI) pattern libraries, to help our community of developers build better, more consistent, more accessible web experiences for many of our Red Hat web properties (not all of our web properties are built using these libraries, but our goal is to make use of them wherever we can.) These components are manually and automatically tested to meet WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards. For more information, visit PatternFly 4’s accessibility guide.

We welcome your assistance in improving PatternFly through contributing code, filing issues, addressing bugs, and suggesting improvements. To learn more about how to participate in our community project, read our community guidelines.
