Americans with Disabilities Act: Accessibility to Web Pages

Official university department and student organization web pages are required to be ADA compliant.

In compliance with Arkansas Act 1227 of 1999 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998, our goal is to assure that people with sensory or motor disabilities can use the information and services on web pages, either directly or by means of existing assistive technologies such as digital text readers, screen-enlarging software, and modified input and output devices.

Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998

Section 508, Subpart A – General

§ 1194.1 Purpose.

The purpose of this part is to implement section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d). Section 508 requires that when Federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology, Federal employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by Federal employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. Section 508 also requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from a Federal agency, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.
