Updates on Section 508

The Access Board has approved its revised rule for Section 508; final review by OMB will soon be followed by publishing the new regulations. The Information Technology Industry Council is updating its Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) to reflect the new rule as well as regulatory actions in other countries. A group of non-Federal accessibility experts has been working at the same time to create a set of recommendations as to how a new VPAT might better serve public sector ICT customers. Let us know what you think, and spread the word.
