Airport 508 Compliance (Web)

Innovation in Aviation - #AAEROLife

Web accessibility can seem complex and overwhelming if you don’t know where to start.

AAERO provides helpful accessibility plugins and website development services that utilize your website’s existing code to increase compliance with WCAG 2.0, ATAG 2.0, ADA, & Section 508.

What is WCAG 2.0?
What is ATAG 2.0?
What is Section 508?

What We Do:

We BUILD, MAINTAIN, and AUDIT General Aviation Airports to ensure they are integrating best web practices and standards as required by Section 508.

WCAG 2.0

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is developed through the W3C process in cooperation with individuals and organizations around the world, with a goal of providing a single shared standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments internationally.

ATAG 2.0

The Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 2.0 provides guidelines for designing web content authoring tools that are both more accessible to authors with disabilities and designed to enable, support, and promote the production of more accessible web content by all authors.

Section 508

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and, if the government entities receive Federal funding, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, generally require that State and local governments provide qualified individuals with disabilities equal access

What is the ASPA/DCD 508 Program?

The ASPA/DCD 508 Program is housed within the OS/ASPA Digital Communications Division.

The goals of the program are to assist HHS OPDIVs and STAFFDIVs in:

  • Testing website, Web pages, Web applications, widgets, documents, and email blasts for 508 compliance
  • Provide guidance on how to correct 508 issues within existing website and documents
  • Empower OPDIVs with the knowledge and resources to ensure the compliance of future website through various training sessions and materials
