Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA)

as posted at...

Illinois Department of Human Services

The Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA) requires Illinois agencies and universities to ensure that their web sites, information systems, and information technologies are accessible to people with disabilities. While the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act already require the State to ensure accessibility, the IITAA establishes specific standards and encourages the State to address accessibility proactively.


IITAA Standards Update

The IITAA Standards Workgroup recommended harmonizing the IITAA Standards with the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and the pending updates to the Federal Section 508 Standards. Once the revised Section 508 Standards are released, we will update IITAA Standards accordingly.
