Accessibility Center for Electronic Information Resources
Accessibility means providing equal access to information and services regardless of a user's physical or developmental abilities or impairments. HHS staff are required by law to ensure that any electronic information resources (EIR) they create or purchase are accessible.
This website includes resources to help HHS staff meet requirements governing the accessibility of EIR including policy information, accessibility guidelines, training resources, and testing tools.
