508 Compliance: Why Web Accessibility Matters

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, in accordance with WCAG 2.0, went into effect January 18, 2018.  If you are a Federal agency or an organization that does business with a Federal agency, this impacts you.  The new law requires all customer-facing content, including websites and apps, meet updated accessibility standards.  

Accessibility (or A11y) means clarity and ease of use for everyone, regardless of circumstance and ability.  The standards that must be met are simple in concept, but extensive in scope.  Implementation can be challenging and many aspects can be easy to miss.  Atlantic BT can guide you through the new requirements and implement the necessary changes to make your website not only compliant, but accessible and inviting to all users.
