The World Wide Web Consortium has appointed a committee to revise Section 255 and Section 508.
  • Section 255 requires that telecommunications products/services be accessible to people with disabilities.
  • Section 508 requires Federal agencies to have technology that 1) ensures that Federal employees with disabilities have access to and can use information/data and 2) ensures that members of the public with disabilities also have access to and can use information/data.
