Accessibility Tools and Reference Materials
General Accessibility Guidelines
Accessibility of Web Content: Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d) sets the federal standard and the Oklahoma Electronic Information Technology Accessibility (EITA) Act (Oklahoma House Bill 2197, adopted April 2004) further apply to web postings from Oklahoma Colleges and Universities. The EITA statute, effective 2005, applies to all documents managed by Oklahoma state agencies, post-secondary institutions, and the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education system.
ADA Instructions for ODOT
The Oklahoma Transportation Library (OTL) tests documents for accessibility using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), currently version 2.0. The WCAG standards are often used to guide institutions of higher education when they receive a complaint of discrimination based on disability. Settlement agreements between the complainants and the institutions frequently point to WCAG 2.0 Success Criteria Levels A, AA, and AAA.
