Frequently Asked Questions

Content accessibility refers to the design of digital products, such as websites, apps, and other electronic resources, ensuring they are accessible to people with disabilities. This encompasses elements like text, images, sounds, and the layout of the web content, ensuring a comprehensive user experience for everyone.
Accessibility guidelines provide recommendations on how to make information and communication technology (ICT) more accessible, typically based on best practices and expert insights. On the other hand, accessibility standards, such as the Section 508 standards, are formal criteria set by recognized entities like the Access Board. Meeting these standards often becomes a legal requirement, especially for federal agencies.
The Access Board is a federal agency committed to ensuring that information and communication technology is accessible to people with disabilities. It provides the framework and specifications which form the foundation of the Section 508 standards and the Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
The Section 508 requirements, aimed at making federal ICT accessible for individuals with disabilities, have been harmonized with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. WCAG 2.0 is an internationally recognized set of criteria for ensuring web content is accessible. By conforming to Section 508, you are also ensuring that your ICT aligns with the principles of WCAG 2.0.
While both provisions are part of the Rehabilitation Act, Section 504 focuses on prohibiting discrimination based on disability in programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. In contrast, Section 508 specifically addresses accessibility requirements for information and communication technology used or maintained by federal agencies.

Ensuring your web content and digital assets are 508 compliant not only meets federal accessibility requirements but also guarantees that your content is accessible for people with disabilities. This inclusive approach can expand your audience reach, improve your reputation, and ensure legal compliance.
The best way to ensure your content conforms to Section 508 is to undergo a thorough evaluation using tools and services like Section 508 assessment, testing, and auditing. Expert consultation can also provide insights and tailored guidance on achieving and maintaining compliance. Learn more: Section 508 Requirements, Resources, and Tools
