Adobe Files -Readers: Adobe's .pdf format is used for some files on this site. You may download a free .pdf viewer from Adobe at www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readermain.html to enable sight-impaired users to convert Adobe PDF files into formats, including HTML & plain text, allowing screen readers to transcript the content. Adobe has also developed a plug-in for Acrobat for Windows that provides similar functionality on a user's local system.
In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act and strengthened provisions covering access to information in the Federal sector for people with disabilities. As amended, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires access to the Federal government's electronic and information technology. The law applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Federal agencies must ensure that this technology is accessible to employees and the public. In compliance with Section 508, the Fort Carson Web Site is dedicated to making all of our web pages accessible to all of our visitors. This page provides links to some major private organizations involved with accessibility issues and to the public law and Section 508 requirements of the Federal IT Accessibility Initiative. These links are provided only to promote better understanding of the law and Section 508 requirements and is in no way intended to recommend the use of any particular source in preference to any other source or sources.
