Section 508 Strategic Plan And Web Accessibility Statement

Thursday, March 28, 2013


On January 24, 2013, the OMB issued a Strategic Plan for Improving Management of Section 508 available at their website:
The plan specifies roles and responsibilities for managing Section 508 compliance within federal agencies and throughout the federal government. It also includes deadlines and milestones to be met by all agencies, as well as some by specific entities. This webinar will provide a basic introduction to the Strategic Plan, its background, its provisions and what to expect as a result of it. One of the requirements is for agencies to include an accessibility statement on all inter-and intranet websites. The Best Practices Subcommittee of the Accessibility Committee has been asked to develop guidance and a sample statement, which will be reviewed in this webinar.
