General Section 508 Webinar The Rehabilitation Act 1973, Section 508 Amendment (1998) requires that any Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT) procured, developed, used or maintained by Federal agencies must be accessible to employees and members of the public with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. To help ensure the VA is compliant with this law to ensure access for all, ITWD, in conjunction with the 508 office, has developed the General Section 508 Training webinar. This webinar, presented by Vicki Leon of VA’s 508 office, is designed to introduce VA developers of electronic and information technology programs to the standards that comprise 508 as well as accessibility issues and tools that assist in creating accessible content.
