Accessibility

SOC.mil cares about the user experience of each and every user therefore we have taken measures to ensure a consistent experience across our websites.

  • We have taken the time to make sure each page on SOC.mil is able to be viewed and read by a screen reader through image tags and alternate text.
  • SOC.mil has been designed to use sans-serif fonts for ease of reading.
  • SOC.mil is reactive to font size changes within your browser for ease of reading.

In the future we look forward to expanding more customization options to you. We realize that one size doesn't fit all and our goal is to ensure that every person, every browser, every device, and every Internet connection maintains a rewarding user experience.

Accessibiility Help and Information

In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual's ability to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.

The law applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Under Section 508 (29 U.S.C. ‘ 794d), agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to the access available to others. It is recommended that you review the laws and regulations listed below to further your understanding about Section 508 and how you can support implementation.

In compliance with Section 508, the USASOC Web Site is dedicated to making all of our web pages accessible to all of our visitors.

This page provides links to some major private organizations involved with accessibility issues and to the public law and Section 508 requirements of the Federal IT Accessibility Initiative. These links are provided only to promote better understanding of the law and Section 508 requirements and is in no way intended to recommend the use of any particular source in preference to any other source or sources.
