Section 508 as it relates to technology (1194.21, 1194.22) should be evaluated and updated on a regular basis. Technology changes rapidly, and the standards are sorely outdated. This means meeting these standards as a software vendor while still enhancing and advancing the product is difficult and costly. It can also result in poor overall user experience by government employees because it may limit the advancements that can be made.
Technology is constantly changing, and the standards cannot remain unchanged over time. Please consider establishing a committee to evaluate and update these standards every few years. This will also raise the bar and set higher expectations for assistive technology to keep up with software advancements. In the end, everyone wins.
