What is ADA 508 Compliance for credit union Websites?

As a Credit Union you must comply with ADA Compliance.

ADA complance for credit union websites“In June 2003, in recognition of how the Internet was transforming interactions between the public and governmental entities, the Department published a document entitled Accessibility of State and Local Government Websites to People with Disabilities, available at http://www.usdoj.gov/crt/ada/websites2.htm, which provides State and local governments guidance on how to make their Web sites accessible to ensure that persons with disabilities have equal access to the services, programs, and activities that are provided through those Web sites.  This guidance recognizes that, increasingly, State and local governments are using their Web sites to allow services, programs, and activities to be offered in a more dynamic and interconnected way, which serves to do all of the following: increase citizen participation; increase convenience and speed in obtaining information or services; reduce costs in providing programs and information about government services; reduce the amount of paperwork; and expand the possibilities of reaching new sectors of the community or offering new programs.  The guidance also provides that State and local governments might be able to meet their title II obligations by providing an alternative accessible means of obtaining the Web site’s information and services (e.g., a staffed telephone line).  However, that guidance makes clear that alternative means would be “unlikely to provide an equal degree of access in terms of hours of operation and the range of options and programs available.” Accessibility of State and Local Government Websites to People with Disabilities, available at http://www.usdoj.gov/crt/ada/websites2.htm.  This is even more true today, almost 13 years later, when the amount of information and complexity of Web sites has increased exponentially.”
