Recap of the January 19th Blind Vet Tech Monthly Tech Talk – Blind Vet Tech

The January 19th Blind Vet Tech Monthly Tech talk featured two topics, review of the VA’s Section 508 Team and using the Voice Over Rotor. Larry from the VA Section 508 Team discussed:

  • Duties and responsibilities of the VA Section 508 Team
  • The difference between usability and accessibility under Section 508
  • The position of the Section 508 Team in the VA’s acquisition of electronic and digital content and interfaces
  • Methods the Section 508 Team tests and strives to enhance the accessibility of VA digital and electronic content and interfaces
  • Discussed the Information and Communications Technologies refresh to Section 508 as it relates to the VA

If you have any questions about the accessibility of digital and electronic content and interfaces, feel free to contact Larry and the Section 508 Team at larry.lewis3@va.gov or section508@va.gov.

The second part of the session enabled participants to discuss how we each use the Voice Over Rotor.
