On March 22, 2010, the US Access Board released its draft ICT accessibility rules, for public comment. This is the next milestone in updating both Section 255 and Section 508 regulations. This draft is called an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Comments on it will be factored into a future Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which will have another comment period for revision, followed by the final rules and an implementation timetable.
We encourage industry and consumers alike to participate in this dialogue as we seek to make all forms of ICT accessible.
