In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities. The law applies to all Federal agencies when they "develop, procure, maintain, or use" electronic and information technology. Under Section 508 (29 U.S.C. 794 d), agencies must give persons with disabilities, both Federal employees and members of the public, access to information that is comparable to access available to others.
