GSA Government-wide Section 508 Accessibility Program

About the Section 508 Blog

The Section 508 Blog is a place where you can find information and discuss Section 508 topics of interest. We are moving the Blog to a new platform which will make it easier to access. (An archive of the former blog is available.) Our objective is for the Section 508 Blog to become the central point of dialogue for Section 508 stakeholders and a solution-space for Section 508-related issues, to include but not be limited to acquisition, development, and implementation of new accessibility enhancing technologies. We intend to open discussions on a host of issues: Announcements about Section 508 events, agency good practices, shared experiences, web accessibility, acquisition insights, “Is it ICT?”, and more. We will be revisiting some familiar topics, as well as creating new posts.

We are looking forward to your participation, comments and feedback. The experiences and efforts of those from the front lines in the Section 508 community are extremely important and of value to everyone who is involved with Section 508.

It is not the intent of this Blog to reflect GSA policy or opinion. We hope this forum will be used to share Section 508 information and good practices.

I hope you find the Section 508 Blog a useful tool – please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments.
