What is 第508节 of the Rehabilitation Act?
8月7日, 1998, President Clinton signed into law the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998, which covers access to federally funded programs and 服务s.
The law strengthens section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and requires access to electronic and information technology provided by the Federal government. The law applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, 采购, maintain or use electronic and information technology. Federal agencies must ensure that this technology is accessible to employees and members of the public with disabilities to the extent it does not pose an “undue burden.”
第508节 addresses various means for disseminating information, 包括电脑, software and electronic office equipment.
The 访问 Board is responsible for developing accessibility standards for such technology for incorporation into regulations that govern Federal 采购ment practices. The 访问 Board issued their Electronic and 信息rmation Technology 可访问性 Standards for 第508节 of the Rehabilitation Act in the Federal 注册 on December 21, 2000. The final standards help Federal agencies determine whether or not a technology product or sy阀杆 is accessible.
Saint Paul College is committed to providing equal access to information technology in accordance with Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
