In 1998, the Rehabilitation Act gained strength when Congress passed an amendment requiring Federal agencies to make their information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Under Section 508, Federal agencies are required to provide disabled employees as well as members of the public accessible information that is comparable to that which is available to those without disabilities, unless doing so produces an undue burden on the agency. Section 508 applies specifically to electronic and information technology products developed, procured, maintained, or used by a Federal agency.
