Implementing the Revised Section 508 Standards: The Path Forward
A panel of federal government experts will discuss implementation successes and challenges encountered, as they see it four months after the revised Section 508 standards became effective. An overview of newly developed resources now available to assist agencies in the adoption of the revised Section 508 standards will be highlighted. As state and local, and many national governments follow the U.S. Government’s direction on IT accessibility, the audience will be encouraged to discuss how these resources can be repurposed for their needs. Panelists include Kathy Eng, Access Board Senior ICT Accessibility Specialist and Co-Chair of the Best Practices Subcommittee, CIO Council Accessibility Community of Practice.
