Web Accessibility

What is Section 508?

Section 508 provides accessibility standards for all information technology including hardware, software and documentation. Originally an amendment to the Workforce Rehabilitation Act of 1973, today it’s part of the United States Access Board’s Electronic and Information Technologies Accessibility Standards. This law establishes guidelines for technology accessibility with binding, enforceable standards, including a complaint procedure and reporting requirements.
