508 COMPLIANCE: The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 508, as amended in 1998 (29 U.S.C. 794D), mandates programming standards and practices for Federal web sites to ensure operability with assistive technologies used to access the World Wide Web by individuals with sensory, cognitive or physical disabilities.
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is not applicable to this VVA, Chapter 103 web site. Nevertheless, the chapter leadership is committed to making this web site accessible to those Veterans and non-Veterans using assistive technologies. To that end and to the extent practicable, the programming of this web site is voluntarily modeled on the requirements of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the accessibility guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium, and the guidelines of the Web Accessibility Initiative.
