About Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

 

State of Nevada's ADA Compliance:

The State of Nevada is committed to providing equitable access to information and services for all its citizens.  One crucial component of complying with this priority entails accessibility of electronic data which meets requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as the Rehabilitation Act of 1975.

Recognizing that many State websites, documents, and other web-accessible objects need to be modified for ADA compliance, EITS evaluated and documented existing web material, and has begun remediation efforts on sites in the State Content Management System.  While this initial effort has resulted in some progress, the volume of work that needs to be accomplished will require a coordinated effort across, and participation by, all State agencies.

State of Nevada ADA Policies, Guidelines and Resources: 
To facilitate this effort and readily identify continued compliance for the future, the EITS Web Team has created the following online remediation training that all agencies can use:

ADA Partners: 

The State of Nevada is very happy to have wonderful partnerships with several groups throughout the State of Nevada. Our goal is to make all of the State of Nevada websites meet the Sections 504 &508 WCAG 2.1 requirements and provide proven ADA training, outreach and support to State of Nevada website owners to meet the ADA compliance laws. 

Any questions regarding the State of Nevada ADA should be directed to the State Web Development Manager, Linda DeSantis, at desantis@admin.nv.gov.

We thank you for your cooperation and partnership in this key technology initiative.
