1998年,國會修訂了1973年的《康復法案》,要求聯邦機構使殘疾人能夠使用其電子和信息技術。不可訪問的技術會干擾個人快速,輕鬆地獲取和使用信息的能力。頒布了第508節,以消除信息技術方面的障礙,為殘疾人提供新的機會,並鼓勵開發有助於實現這些目標的技術。該法律適用於開發,採購,維護或使用電子和信息技術的所有聯邦機構。根據第508節的規定,代理機構必須向殘障員工和公眾提供與他人可獲得的信息相當的信息訪問權限,除非會對代理機構造成不必要的負擔。

Section 508 sets standards and requirements for the following types of products: software applications, operating systems, web-based Intranet and Internet information and applications, telecommunications products, video and multimedia products, self-contained, closed products, desktop and portable computers.
