What is Section 508?
Section 508 standard of the Rehabilitation Act 1973 is a pivotal framework that requires all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by the federal government be accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 applies to electronic and information technology procured by the federal government, including computer hardware and software, websites, multimedia such as video, phone systems, and copiers.
Section 508 compliance testing plays a major role in achieving digital accessibility by providing an inclusive online experience for people with disabilities.
Section 508 standards are based on WCAG and are periodically updated to align with advancements in technology and changes in best practices for accessibility. On January 18, 2017, the U.S. Access Board published a final rule updating accessibility requirements for ICT covered by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and Section 255 of the Communications Act.
