What is WCAG 2.1?
It’s a set of published guidelines put together by the World Wide Web Consortium or W3C, which is the main international standards organization for the Internet.
This was possible by individuals and organizations representing industry, disability organizations, government, and research labs from all over the globe coming together for a single and shared standard for web content accessibility.
Section 508 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973
Who should be compliant with Section 508?
Section 508 is an amendment to the US Workforce Rehabilitation Act of 1973 passed into law in 1998, that mandates Federal agencies of the United States to make accessible their electronic and information technology to persons with disabilities.
It covers technologies developed, procured, maintained, or used by the federal government. The law deems that technologies should be available to those with disabilities as they were with those without.
