IBM has a long-standing commitment to people with diverse abilities which began in 1914 when we hired our first disabled employee. In keeping with that commitment to accessibility, IBM strongly supports the U.S. Federal government's and other industries's use of accessibility as a criterion in the procurement of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Our own efforts to define and deliver sensible and effective approaches to promote accessibility evolved as IBM worked with the US government to define its standards for Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, the EU to define EN 301 549, and the W3C to issue WCAG 2.1.
