Standards For Compliance
Extensive effort is made to adhere to the Federal Section 508 Standards requirements set forth in the Rehabilitation Act that was amended in 1998. Refreshed in January 2017, these standards were created to help eliminate barriers in information technology, make new opportunities available for people with disabilities, and encourage the development of technologies that help achieve these goals.(Guidelines and Standards)
