Section 508 is an important amendment to the Rehabilitation Act that protects the rights of people with disabilities, requiring Federal agencies to ensure that their websites and electronic information technology is fully accessible to those who have disabilities. This also applies to any organization that receives federal funding or contracts, as well as educational institutions that receive funding via the Assistive Technology Act.
