Resources for Accessible Web Design

Accessibility Goals

Boise State University will work to ensure accessibility of web resources for all users. We will accomplish this by meeting web accessibility guidelines set forth in Section 508 for Federal Accessibility Standards.

What are the Section 508 requirements for websites?

The internet information systems requirements can be found at:

How do I know if my website meets these accessibility standards?

This is a  free validation tool you can use to check if your website meets section 508 standards:

You can also add plug-ins to your Firefox and Google chrome browsers to check accessibility standards.

What resources are available to me?

  • http://www.section508.gov/ provides the history and specifications of Section 508 plus tutorials and training materials.
