Website Accessibility

The Alliance supports the need for all websites to adopt best practices that allow all users to access information equally.  United States government sites are required to adhere to a set of standards as per the 1998 Congressional amendment made to the 1973 Workforce Rehabilitation Act.  The Alliance website is Section 508 compliant.

“The purpose of this part is to implement section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d).  Section 508 requires that when Federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology, Federal employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by Federal employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.   Section 508 also requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from a Federal agency, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.”   Official Section508.gov website.
