From the US Access Board…
The Original Section 508 Standards Compared to the Revised Section 508 Standards
The next webinar in the Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series will take place May 30 from 1:00 to 2:30 (ET) and cover changes in the 2017 edition of the Section 508 Standards that the U.S. Access Board published in January. Presenters will review new provisions as well as substantive and organizational changes from the original 508 Standards (2000).
The Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series provides helpful information and best practices for federal agencies in meeting their obligations under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act which ensures access to information and communication technology in the federal sector. This webinar series is made available by the Accessibility Community of Practice of the CIO Council in partnership with the Access Board.
