Topic: "What's New in Accessibility"

As things have been progressing with the internet and ajax technology, it's not as simple as it was
in the past to implement Section 508 compliancy in products just by using the 16 'rules' of Section
508. Also the Access Board is going through a review and refresh and will be changing the standards
and requirements within this year/18 months for future 508 compliancy.

Just making certain alt tags exist is no longer a baseline for compliancy especially with SCORM and
LMS learning systems that the goverment is turning to more and more. I have been tackling this very
issue at my job and had a fair amount of indivduals who were frustrated by the lack of guidance at
this point for indivduals whose jobs are to enfore and attempt 508. One key is the old 'use the tab
order'. That does not work anymore especially in ajax, weblogic. BEA beahive, etc.
