The NDCEE is dedicated to making all information and technology available to individuals with disabilities. In 1998, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments, as amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, issued accessibility standards setting forth electronic and information technology performance criteria. As amended, Section 508 requires that when Federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology, they must ensure that this information is accessible to every individual.
Using accessibility guidelines, we are continuously improving our Web pages for easy access to all visitors. The NDCEE is making every effort to bring our website into Section 508 compliance, and will continue with these efforts as new methods and technology becomes available.
