Scetion 508 & WCAG 2.0 Compliance
Section 508 is a part of the US Rehabilitation Act. This particular part of the law is making sure that websites can be used by all people including disabled people. Section 508 has traditionally been an independent set of guidelines used to check websites. More recently in 2018, the W3C issued the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.1 as an updated guideline for web applications to follow.
As with most accessibility considerations, a combination of manual and automated testing is advisable to determine Section 508 and WCAG 2.1 compliance. Regular reviews of your website are highly recommended to make sure that your site does not fall out of compliance as your content changes.
Making sure that your website meets both Section 508 and WCAG 2.1 compliance has many advantages including:
- Attract new potential customers to your website by making it accessible to everyone.
- Boost your brand perception by showing customers that you care
