O*NET OnLine Help
Accessibility

In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. 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.

In keeping with both the letter of and the spirit of Section 508 compliance, The Department of Labor is committed to making O*NET OnLine accessible to the widest possible audience, including persons with disabilities. So that all may benefit from O*NET's comprehensive occupational information and on-line functionality, we are ensuring, to the maximum extent feasible, that information in O*NET is accessible to persons using assistive technology.

O*NET OnLine also provides extensive linkages to additional resources for more information on accommodations, disabilities, and workplace issues. O*NET OnLine has made efforts to accommodate the diverse needs of users, following the guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
