What is Section 508 Compliance?
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires federal agencies to make electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities. The law was amended in 1998. Section 508 requires government agencies to:
- Provide equal access to electronic information and data for people with disabilities.
- Ensure that the ICT they develop, procure, maintain, or use allows employees and members of the public with disabilities to access and use information and data.
Criterion's Section 508 Compliance Services
Criterion helps organizations meet the accessibility requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 sets guidelines for federal agencies when developing, procuring, maintaining, or using electronic and information technology. These guidelines are meant to help people with disabilities easily access documents, websites, and applications used and developed by or for US government agencies.
We provide clients with guidance in the following areas:
- Developing, procuring, maintaining, and using ICT products and services
- Ensuring information and communication technology meets or exceeds legal requirements.
- Auditing digital assets (websites, mobile apps, software, etc.) against the WCAG conformance level
Common examples of our Section 508 consulting work include:
- Staying current on the latest rules, regulations, software, and best practices and presenting quarterly updates to clients.
- Auditing government enterprise applications for Section 508/WCAG compliance and working with agency vendors to create remediation project plans.
- Remediating websites, applications, and native mobile apps for Section 508 compliance.
We will identify all areas of Section 508 non-compliance and help your team throughout the repair process. What if you don’t have internal web development resources? In that case, we can work with your 3rd party vendor or refer you to qualified experts who can make the necessary WCAG repairs based on our audit results. No project is either too big or too small for Criterion!
