Revised 508 Standards Roadmap (beta)The Revised 508 Standards of the Rehabilitation Act ensure information and communication technology (ICT) is accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities. Federal agencies must comply with the Revised 508 Standards beginning January 18, 2018.
This Roadmap, developed by the U.S. Federal Government Revised 508 Standards Transition Workgroup and GSA, shows how to integrate the standards into an existing 508 Program.
We are looking for agency feedback on this Roadmap, so please email your comments and suggestions to GSA at [email protected] (link sends e-mail). Also, please note that some content is still in development, and will be linked in below as it’s finalized.
