Section 508 Accessible
HTML and PDF Forms
Accessibility enables individuals with disabilities
to read, hear and interact with computer-based information.
Accessible forms allow those using screen readers to easily
identify fields and navigate well-structured tab orders.
What Is Section 508?
In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require
Federal agencies to make their electronic and information
technology accessible to people with disabilities.
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.
Why Should You Create Compliant Forms?
Under Section 508 (29 U.S.C. ‘ 794d), federal agencies
must give disabled employees and members of the public access
to information that is comparable to the access available
