Accessibility Policy

Why is Accessibility Important?

It has been estimated that 54 million people (20.6% of Americans) have some level of disability. This is a large segment of society waiting for opportunities to interact with all levels of government. Estimates indicate that over 95 percent of all Web sites are not accessible. With the increasing number of Web sites coming online daily, these numbers are staggering. As of January 2000, there were an estimated 10 million Web sites online; by the year 2002 the number of site increased to 100 million.

IN.gov Accessibility Policy

Indiana is committed to inclusion and universal access in all of its services and programs. We pledge to develop and maintain accessIndiana Web pages and services so that they are accessible to persons with all types of abilities. Each visitor using this Web site has the right to obtain information and services independently and conveniently.

In the spirit of this commitment, Indiana Code 4-13.1-3 was created to ensure all state information technology equipment, software, and systems used by the public or state employees complies with the accessibility standards of Section 508 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 508).

With the guidance of the state's Assistive Technology Standards Group (ATSG), we are making progress toward this commitment. We are continually monitoring pages on our site and making necessary modifications to remove accessibility obstacles.
