Government organizations at all levels are investing in web accessibility to improve their reach and effectiveness online. Making websites more accessible and usable is a great way to improve service for all types of constituents – not only people with disabilities, but also seniors, adults with low literacy, and non-native English speakers. Federal, state, and local governments also face increased legal and regulatory scrutiny of website accessibility, requiring compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and US Rehabilitation Act Section 508 guidelines. Turnkey solutions from Sitecues can boost the effectiveness of E-government.
