Implementation and Support: W3C HTML Accessibility Certification

Section 508 is a government standard that provides the direction on how to make information technology accessible. It requires all US federal agencies to make their information technology accessible to their employees and customers with disabilities. Starting in June 2001, all new IT equipment and services purchased by federal agencies must be accessible. Customers must be able to access information available to the public. Section 508 also applies to Web sites that are produced for government agencies. All state agencies and vendors, whether US or foreign, that receive federal funds under the Assistive Technology Act of 1998 are also required to comply with Section 508 requirements.

A W3C Accessibility validation test verifies the compliance of the page code with the W3C HTML standards using the W3C HTML Validator. Upon completion of the validation testing of your page content, we will provide you with a detailed analysis of the result along with comprehensive recommendations for addressing any issues identified. We can then assist you with correcting any errors and you will be provided with a certification by Lighthouse Technology Services showing that your page(s) have passed validation testing.
