In January 2017, the U.S. Access Board published a final rule updating information technology (IT)accessibility requirements covered by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which includes IT that is developed, procured, maintained, or used by federal agencies. The Rehabilitation Act is a federal law which requires programs and activities funded by federal agencies to be accessible to people with disabilities, including federal employees and members of the public. Here's a recap of the changes.
Compliance with the Revised 508 Standards is also a requirement of OMB M-17-06, Policies for Federal Agency Public Websites and Digital Services (PDF, 1.2 MB, 18 pages, November 2016). They went into effect on January 18, 2018. Watch this video to learn more.
Notable changes to the Standards include:
Your first stop for guidance on the new Standards is the Revised 508 Standards Toolkit Policy Refresh. Developed by GSA's Government-wide 508 Program, the US Access Board, and the Federal CIO Council Accessibility Community of Practice, it's the central hub for Standards implementation guidance.
If you're a developer or content manager, this detailed guidance will help you create accessible systems and content, and learn how to test content for accessibility.
Learn how to define requirements and procure IT products and services that comply with the Revised 508 Standards.
These tools will help your agency comply with the management responsibilities that go along with the 508 Standards Refresh.
