Everyone who works on government websites has a role to play in making federal resources accessible and inclusive.

Choose the guide that fits your role:

These roles are based on the roles we have at the Technology Transformation Services at GSA.

This guide provides:

  • An overview of how each team member can contribute to a product's accessibility
  • A framework for thinking about accessibility and inclusive design in your role
  • An understanding of the human need behind accessibility practices

We focus on the issues most likely to impact government sites. These guidelines do not provide a comprehensive list of all possible issues. Your team will need additional resources and work to conduct manual audits to conform to the standards of Section 508 (which aligns with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA), a law that ensures all web content is accessible to anybody with a disability.
