The E-Government Act of 2002 is a law that requires federal agencies to make their websites accessible to people with disabilities. The act also requires government agencies to make their websites available in different languages and formats, such as Braille and audio.
The E-Government Act applies to any executive agency that’s required to establish an Internet site by law or by presidential order. This includes executive departments, independent agencies and boards; the United States Postal Service; and other federal entities that are required to have a website.
The law doesn’t apply to sites maintained by Congress or the judiciary branch of government.
