Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA)

Helping Families. Supporting Communities. Empowering Individuals.

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.

Standards

IITAA Standards Update

In previous years, the IITAA Standards Workgroup recommended harmonizing the IITAA Standards with the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and the "refreshed" Federal Section 508 Standards. Now that Section 508 Standards update has been published, Illinois will be updating the IITAA Standards accordingly.
