Government accessibility

The big day for Section 508 arrives. In InfoWorld, Government 'accessibility' effort goes into effect. A broad government initiative to drive the development of more IT products and services for people with disabilities kicks into full gear. All vendors selling to the federal government must now have equivalents for the products and services they offer that allow agencies to accommodate people with disabilities. ... Starting June 21, federal employees with disabilities are able to file complaints if not properly accommodated. Accessibility standards developed by government-chartered Access Board, however, will not take effect as regulations until Monday, June 25.
