In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies
to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with
disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual's ability
to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to
eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities
for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies
that will help achieve these goals. Voluntary Product Accessibility Template
(VPAT) documents detailing this compliance are available below in Acrobat PDF format.
