Americans with Disabilities
U.S. Access Board - Advancing Full Access and
Inclusion for All
The U.S. Access Board is a federal agency that promotes equality for
people with disabilities through leadership in accessible design and the
development of accessibility guidelines and standards for the built
environment, transportation, communication, medical diagnostic
equipment, and information technology.
Web-based Intranet and Internet Information and
These provisions of the standards provide the requirements that must
be followed by Federal agencies when producing web pages. These
provisions apply unless doing so would impose an undue burden.
The key to compliance with these provisions is adherence to the
provisions. Many agencies have purchased assistive software to test
their pages. This will produce a better understanding of how these
devices interact with different coding techniques. However, it
always should be kept in mind that assistive technologies, such as
screen readers, are complex programs and take extensive experience
to master. For this reason, a novice user may obtain inaccurate
results that can easily lead to frustration and a belief that the
page does not comply with the standards. For example, all screen
reading programs use special key combinations to read properly coded
tables. If the novice user of assistive technology is not aware of
these commands, the tables will never read appropriately no matter
how well the tables have been formatted. A web site will be in
compliance with the 508 standards if it meets paragraphs (a) through
(p) of Section 1194.22. Please note that the tips and techniques
discussed in the document for complying with particular sections are
not necessarily the only ways of providing compliance with 508. In
many cases, they are techniques developed by the Board, the
Department of Education, and the Department of Justice that have
been tested by users with a wide variety of screen reader software.
With the evolution of technology, other techniques may become
available or even preferable.
