Arkansas State Digital Accessibility Requirements

Act 1227 of 1999 requires the Arkansas Department of Information Systems to develop Non-visual Standards for Arkansas that ensures the needs of Arkansans who are blind or visually impaired are met through reasonable accommodation in the information technology products and services of the state, including state employees, program participants, and members of the general public. This includes purchases made by the state. If accessible technology is not reasonably available to those with visual disabilities, reasonable accommodation must be made available.

Public Accommodation Laws

It is illegal to discriminate on the basis of mental or physical disability, and all have the right to the full enjoyment of any of the accommodations, advantages, facilities, or privileges of any place of public resort, accommodations, assemblage, or amusement.

Violation Penalties

Any person who is injured by an intentional act of discrimination in violation of civil rights laws shall have a civil action to enjoin further violations, to recover compensatory and punitive damages, and, in the discretion of the court, to recover the cost of litigation and a reasonable attorney’s fee.
