On April 20, 2004, Gov. Brad Henry signed an HB 2197, now known as the Oklahoma Electronic Information Technology Accessibility (EITA) Act. The law resulted in the creation of standards designed to make information technology, including website content and tools, accessible for persons with disabilities.
On Jan. 18, 2018, the federal Section 508 standards were refreshed in order to update information and communication technology accessibility requirements. Effective March 1, 2020, the Information Technology Accessibility Standards as published July 1, 2005, and revised on June 2012, were replaced with the Information and Communication Technology Accessibility Standards, reflecting the refreshed Section 508 standards.
Standards, developed by the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES), are based on Federal Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act accessibility standards, but do not reflect all parts of Section 508.
