What is Section 508 compliance?
Section 508 compliance ensures that all visitors to your site, regardless of disability status, can access technology. You have the opportunity to connect across barriers and create increased access for all users. Section 508 compliance means your website is compatible with assistive technology like screen readers.
Why is Section 508 compliance important in government?
Government websites need to be accessible to anyone who visits the site. Section 508 compliance makes that happen and keeps a government site inclusive for all. Making sure your government site is accessible goes a long way in building trust and communicating clearly to everyone in your audience.
