📖 IMSPARK: Accessible and Inclusive Pacific federal information and communication technology 📖

 📖 Imagine... Accessible and Inclusive Pacific federal information and communication technology 📖 

💡 Imagined Endstate: 

A Pacific where we can access, use, and benefit from the information and communication technology (ICT) provided by the federal government, regardless of our abilities or disabilities, and where we can participate and contribute to the government’s missions and services as employees, contractors, or citizens.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provides that the government makes ICT accessible to people with disabilities.  🎧This means that ICT must be operable, perceivable, understandable, and robust for people who use assistive technologies, such as screen readers, magnifiers, or keyboards.  💻Accessible ICT benefits not only people with disabilities but also people with temporary or situational impairments, such as low vision, hearing loss, or limited mobility. 🦽The report provides an overview of the government’s progress and challenges in implementing Section 508, as well as recommendations and best practices for improving accessibility and compliance.⚖️ The report also highlights the importance of accessibility for the Pacific region, where many people face barriers to accessing ICT due to geographic isolation, limited infrastructure, or cultural diversity.
