Section 504

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.

"No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States, as defined in section 7(20), shall solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Section 508 is a part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 amended in 1998 through the Workforce Investment Act. It requires accessibility to people with disabilities using electronic and information technology that is developed, procured, maintained or used by the federal government. The Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards promulgated by the U.S. Access Board provide accessibility requirements for mainstream technology.
