Presenters will review a draft best practices guide for baseline testing of PDF files prepared by the CIO Council's Accessible Electronic Document Community of Practice. The guide, "Harmonized Processes for Section 508 Testing: Baseline Tests for Accessible Electronic Documents—PDF Portable Document Format," establishes testing protocols to determine whether a PDF file satisfies Section 508 requirements. This guidance, which is due to be issued soon in final form, is part of an effort to establish a uniform approach to Section 508 testing among government agencies.
The Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series provides helpful information and best practices for federal agencies in meeting their obligations under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act which ensures access to electronic and information technology in the federal sector. This webinar series is made available by the Accessibility Community of Practice of the CIO Council in partnership with the U.S. Access Board.
