508 Remediation and How Being Compliant Helps Break Down Barriers to Your Customers



508 compliance means that all Internet users, regardless of disability, can access technology at the same level. Being compliant helps to breaks down barriers to your customer and provides new and equal opportunities to everyone.

 

Compliance standards are set by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which were amended in 1998 to include information technology in the federal sector. This requirement empowers 25 million American’s with visual impairments to access online media and digital publications through the use of screen readers. The Department of Justice recently enacted a rule mandating the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as the standard for web accessibility.

 

Who Needs to Be Compliant?

  • Federally-funded nonprofits

  • Public K-12 schools

  • Health plans

  • Any corporation receiving federal funds

  • Any business with a public facing website
