We are committed to ensuring that Disability.gov is accessible to all visitors.
This website has been developed to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology for people with disabilities by requiring federal government agencies to provide comparable information and data to individuals with or without disabilities.
The site is regularly monitored to ensure that it meets and exceeds the requirements of Section 508.
How Is Disability.gov Tested for Accessibility?
As part of the development process and ongoing website maintenance, the Disability.gov team tests the site using several different assistive technologies, including screen readers, screen magnifiers, speech recognition software and text-only browsers. Our team also uses tools such as the W3C HTML Validator, WAVE by WebAIM and the Color Contrast Analyzer to ensure the best experience possible for all visitors.
