Policies and Laws for Accessible Electronic and Information Technology

Research materials (computer, books, pen and paper)


State of California

In California, Section 508 was codified in Government Code 11135 by the State Legislature in 2002 through Senate Bill 105. Government Code 11135 requires the CSU to comply with the accessibility requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended, and to apply the U.S. Access Board accessibility standards to the electronic and information technology products and services that it buys, creates, uses and maintains.

Assembly Bill 422 requires publishers of textbooks to make book content available to disabled students in an e-text format. This law applies to print media. However, since the e-text resulting from the process is an information technology resource, it is covered by this policy.
