The U.S. Access Board is an independent federal agency that promotes equality for people with disabilities through leadership in accessible design. The board develops guidelines and standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other federal laws that address access to the built environment, transportation, communication, and information technology. In addition, the board enforces accessibility standards covering federally funded facilities and promotes accessibility through public outreach, technical assistance, training, published guidance, and research. Copies of all board guidelines and standards are available free from the board, including through its website, in a variety of formats. The board also publishes a host of guidance materials on its design requirements and other aspects of accessible design for professional, consumer, and general audiences.
