In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual's ability to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. Under Section 508 (29 U.S.C. ‘ 794d), agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to the access available to others. The Department of the Interior’s Office of Everglades Restoration is committed to making its programs, reports, website and meetings accessible both to the public and to employees with disabilities.
