The Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA) requires Illinois agencies and universities to ensure that their web sites, information systems, and information technologies are accessible to people with disabilities.
The IITAA requires the State of Illinois to review its accessibility standards at least once every three years. In 2017, the IITAA Standards Workgroup updated the IITAA standards to harmonize with the revised Federal Section 508 Standards and the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. During the most recent review on November 19, 2020, the workgroup recommended keeping the IITAA 2.0 Standards aligned with Section 508 and WCAG 2.0, while encouraging compliance with WCAG 2.1 and newer guidelines when possible.
The Lake County Workforce Development Board (LCWDB) website strives for maximum compliance with WCAG 2.1 and Section 508 Standards.
