On April 20, 2004, Gov. Brad Henry signed an HB 2197, now known as the Oklahoma Electronic Information Technology Accessibility (EITA) Act. The law resulted in the creation of standards designed to make information technology, including Web site content and tools, accessible for persons with disabilities. Standards (Link opens in a new window), developed by the Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Advisory Council, are based on Federal Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act accessibility standards.
Documents on the DHS Web site may occasionally be presented in formats other than HTML. These formats are generally accessible to users using screen reading software. The screen reading capabilities of Adobe Acrobat Reader (full version) may allow vision-impaired visitors to access PDF content. In the event that the PDF format of a document cannot be made fully accessible, an alternate version of the document will be provided in an accessible format.
The Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) is working to meet compliance with Oklahoma's EITA standards and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. If you need a document in an alternative format to meet your accessibility needs or have any difficulty viewing any content with assistive technology, please contact us at OCR.Accessibility@DHS.org.
