In this final rule, the Access Board is updating its existing Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards under section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, (“508 Standards”), as well as our Telecommunications Act Accessibility Guidelines under Section 255 of the Communications Act of 1934 (“255 Guidelines”). Given the passage of nearly two decades since their issuance, the existing 508 Standards and 255 Guidelines are in need of a “refresh” in several important respects.
