Accessibility

We wish to ensure that access is available to all individuals.

If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our website interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact the Office of Enterprise Technology Services via its online web form at: http://ets.hawaii.gov/contact/

In your message, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the requested material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information so that we may best serve you.


In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Inaccessible technology interferes with an individual’s ability to obtain and use information quickly and easily. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.

This site has been designed to be compatible with a wide variety of browsers and with assistive technologies in mind. To this end, this site conforms to World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0,” Level A, available at: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20

Our goal is to continue to work to make access available to all individuals, and therefore we are currently striving to reach Level AA compatibility. Improving access to citizens with disabilities is one of our top priorities, and any suggestions or comments are welcome.

Note:  eHawaii.gov complies with the W3C’s guidelines but cannot guarantee that links to sites outside the portal architecture are accessible.
