About Accessible Documents
The Center for Disability Policy Research attempts to make every document fully accessible to all individuals as specified under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, and all documents in our database marked with an asterisk (*) on this website are accessible. Section 508 requires federal agencies to give people with disabilities the same access as the general population to electronic information that is developed, procured, maintained, or used by the agencies. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals. For more information about Section 508, see http://www.section508.gov.
Those documents not marked accessible do not fully comply with Section 508 guidelines because the project’s sponsor did not provide funding to make them compliant. In general, the text in these documents can be read by screen readers, but some charts and figures might not be fully accessible to all audiences.
The Center for Studying Disability Policy is committed to making our materials available to all audiences. We encourage readers who need additional support regarding any of our documents to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
