Availability of Information Requirement

The County of Sonoma seeks to make its web sites accessible to all individuals. The Web Site Accessibility Standards and Guidelines (Standards) is designed according to principals intended to further that goal including standards from Section 508 of Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (§ 1194.22).

These Standards are designed as a guideline and resource for complying with the County of Sonoma’s Web Site Accessibility Policy.
