About 57 million Americans have disabilities. Globally, that number is in the hundreds of millions. Each day, more than 3.5 million web pages and over 750,000 new images are posted on the ‘Net’. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act was created to ensure that Federal employees and members of the public with disabilities, have the same access to and use of information and data, that members of the public without disabilities have.
Assistive technologies used by those with disabilities include text readers. In order for their text readers to function with their web browsers, the websites they browse must be ‘enabled’ or section 508 standards compliant, so that text and graphical content (without text) can be interpreted.
