State E&IT Accessibility Initiatives Workgroup

Note: This workgroup is no longer active

The State E&IT Accessibility Initiatives Workgroup is a workgroup of ITTATC, in collaboration with the Rehabilitation Engineering Society of North America's Technical Assistance Project (RESNA TA) and the Association of Tech Act Projects (ATAP).

The overall goal of the State E&IT Accessibility Initiatives Workgroup is to improve electronic and information technology (E&IT) accessibility at a state level online, in places where employees of state government work, and in places of public access. Places of public access include information kiosks of state government, public libraries, One-Stop centers of the Workforce Development System, and state-funded computer labs.

The objective of the State E&IT Initiatives Workgroup is not to monitor compliance with Section 508 at a state level, but rather to increase understanding, build capacity, inform, and transfer knowledge about promising state E&IT accessibility policies and practices related to: state-operated or funded web sites, application development, and places of public access.

To meet this objective, the Workgroup, with collaborating state stakeholders, will:
  • Develop information materials targeted to the knowledge utilization needs of the targeted state stakeholder audiences
  • Develop training materials and conduct trainings customized to the needs of the targeted audiences
  • Develop and maintain an online database that provides current information on state E&IT accessibility initiatives with links to state specific policies and guidelines
  • Identify knowledge experts available to assist state stakeholder audiences with training and technical assistance activities
