Disability Statistics in the United States
Types of Disabilities and Populations
In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, requiring federal agencies to allow their electronic and information technology (EIT) to be accessible to people with disabilities. Section 508 applies to all federal agencies when they procure, develop, maintain, or use electronic information technology, such as computer software, phone systems and websites. Additionally, under this law, agencies are required to provide disabled employees and members of the public equal access to information that would be available to others. The U.S. Access Board issues these standards and continuously updates and revises them to match changes in technology, as well as to unify WCAG 2.1 guidelines.
Lack of Compliance is Considered Discrimination
