Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was amended in 1998 by Congress to require all Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Since then, Section 508 compliance has not only been a requirement in government agencies, but it’s also important when providing software solutions and designing Web pages.
Section 1194.22 of the Section 508 law specifically targets Web-based intranet and internet information and systems, and contain a set of 16 rules to follow.
