Why is accessibility important?

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the web -
including online training programs. These disabilities may include visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive and neurological disorders.

The federal government ( Section 508) and most states have passed laws
requiring accessibility for web content. Most universities also have policies for accessible web sites.

Recommendations and standards for accessibility have been published by the Federal government and other organizations such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The ACT Program has been validated to be in compliance with these recommendations and standards.
