About Accessibility

Doc-To-Help NetHelp projects can be configured to be accessible. In this case, that means to be Section 508 compliant.

Section 508 is part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and requires Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. To find out more about Section 508, and obtain information about guidelines, tools and other resources, see:

Once you have set up your project to be Section 508 compliant, and provided alternative text where required (for example, images and tables), you should test your source documents and project with one of the third-party tools available for verifying accessibility.
