Digital Accessibility and American Disabilities Act Questions
WCAG stands for The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, and they are part of a series of web accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which is the main international standards organization for the Internet. WCAG 2.0’s essential design concepts are labeled Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust (POUR). Designers and developers are asked to meet all four of these principals for users with disabilities and then select a degree of compliance (Level A, AA, or AAA).
C-Hear Technology Questions
Why not just make a movie file?
Size and scope are the reasons. For example:
A. 242 Kb JPEG image file file
B. 22 second, 584 Kb MP3 audio file.
When we put them together what do we get? Will it be an 826 Kb file? No, when you put these 2 files together, you end up with a 7.7 Mb movie file, or mpeg4 file. This is impractical for websites with dozens of images like e-commerce pages or slideshow pages.
What is a Codec?
A codec is a computer program (or a device) that encodes or decodes a digital data stream or signal. Codecs also compress data to reduce transmission bandwidth or file size.
Is C-Hear Technology (CHIF) mobile ready?
Is proprietary software required to access a CHIF file?
No. CHIF can be accessed using most modern browsers.
Are the image files compressed?
CHIF maintains the quality of the images. No compression is used.

What is the difference between CHIF and DICOM?
CHIF goes beyond the capacity of a standard DICOM file.
The following is a list of healthcare related data that can be stored in a CHIF file:
- Diagnostic Images (DICOM, JPEG, TIFF,PNG, etc)
- Videos, such as Ultrasound (MLV, WMV, AVI, MP4, etc)
- Lab and Radiology Reports
- Audio Dictation
- Auscultation sounds
- Text Data
- Text, image, or audio annotations
- Electronic signatures
- And much more
