The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act both ensure that all people have equal access to goods, services, and communication. Section 508 is specific to Information Communication Technology for federal government agencies and services. The ADA is a broader law that covers all entities, organizations, public, private, and not-for-profit; excluding federal agencies. The ADA Standards require equal access to all goods, services, information, and communication.
So, between the two Acts, everyone is covered.
We are compliant with ADA, ADA section 508 and WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
