We worry about your Digital Accessibility so you don’t have to.

Around 56.7 million Americans currently live with some form of disability. This number continues to increase as the population ages. It is expected that by 2060, the number of Americans living with disabilities will double to nearly 90 million. Those with vision, hearing, or physical disabilities are expected to make up around 20 percent of the population. These individuals can experience significant challenges when it comes to accessing websites, as well as applications and online documents.

ADA Compliance for Federal Government Institutions
Are you aware that Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was updated in 2017? This update affects Federal Government Institutions.

Why is being ADA Compliant important in Federal Government Institutions for those with disabilities?

  • If the federal agency’s form’s fields on their website cannot be read by a screen reader, then they cannot collect feedback from citizens with disabilities regarding a potential change to their programs.
  • If an employee who has worked with you from the beginning develops a hand tremor but your computer system does not work with voice-recognition software, then they will not be able to do their job.
  • Deaf or hard of hearing citizens will not be able to understand your video if you post it online without captions or a transcript.

First passed: 1973.
Recently refreshed: 2017.
Applies to: Federal agencies, their contractors, and vendors.
