Our Mission: The primary mission of fx-APP.org (ITSA Board) is to promote accessibility to software applications for individuals with disabilities using a combination of guidelines from W3C, S.508, and other reasonable standards in accessibility and useability defined by our Accessibility Standards Consortium (ITSA Board).
Standards: In an effort to address the needs of all Internet users, but especially those with disabilities, the ITSA Board has established the Information Technology, Web Standards and Accessibility Guidelines. These standards are based on the U.S. Federal Government’s “Section 508″ and World Wide Web Consortium accessibility guidelines, which were reviewed extensively by the ITSA Board.
Why Two Standards? You may wonder why the ITSA Board has created an additional set of standards when the Section 508 and W3C standards already exist. The answer is quite simple: The Federal Section 508 guidelines deal with a very basic level of accessibility needs while leaving out many issues facing Internet users. The W3C guidelines, on the other hand, offer three tiers of priorities that go into greater depth than many individuals are able to reasonably address. The ITSA Board incorporates a combination of the two creating a standard well suited to serve all users of electronic, online applications.
Services:The ITSA Board offers products and services to businesses, individuals and to the U.S. Government in the areas of accessibility and useability standards. If you wish as many people to access your Web site with as much ease as possible, contact us for additional information. The letters “ITSA” stand for “information technology standards (and) accessibility”.
