The mission of the Accessibility Forum is to provide government agencies and vendors of E&IT and Assistive Technology with effective and broadly accepted metrics and methods to assess whether E&IT products comply with Section 508 accessibility standards. The Accessibility Forum seeks industry leadership and user involvement in development of these accessibility assessment metrics and methods. The Accessibility Forum provides the infrastructure for continuing collaboration and dialogue between users and vendors. It should also provide a means for vendors to gain insight into accessibility needs that could be addressed in future products.
