Social media sites, such as YouTube and Facebook, have made the distribution of online video a thriving industry, and video has revolutionized the online learning world. With online video so embedded (pun intended) in our lives, it makes perfect sense for government agencies to use video to engage its citizens. But the U.S. federal government is mandated to deliver information and services in a way that is accessible to all federal employees and U.S. citizens - 17% percent of whom have a disability that impacts computer use.
This year the BuyAccessible team is thankful for all the Section 508 Coordinators who work hard to support the implementation of Section 508 within their respective departments and agencies. You are an important part of making Information and Communication Technology (ICT), accessible to people with disabilities. We wish you and your families a very happy holiday.
