The Navy's approach to Section 508 compliance standards
What is Section 508 of the rehabilitation act?
Section 508 requires that all Federal agency electronic and information technology be accessible to people with disabilities, including employees and members of the public. This includes web sites.
It was established to prohibit barriers in information technology and present new opportunities and promises for people with disabilities. Through its implementation, it will provide greater access opportunities for all.
Section 508 ensures that individuals with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that of individuals without disabilities.
