Which states have technology accessibility laws, policies, and standards?
The Georgia Tech Research Institute maintains a web page called State E & IT Accessibility Initiatives, which summarizes the accessibility-related laws, policies, standards or guidelines, and other resources that states have published on-line in support of website accessibility, application development, and IT procurement. Each initiative is accompanied by a link to its state-based source. This information is useful to states and other organizations that wish to compare their laws, policies, and standards to others or who are in the beginning stages of developing them.
Many states use the Section 508 standards developed for the U.S. federal government by the Access Board or the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines of the international World Wide Web Consortium; some use a combination of the two or develop their own standards.
