Act 1227 of 1999 required 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
of the state. Information technology products and services include
voice, and video technologies, as well as information dissemination
methods such as the Internet.
In essence, this means that Arkansas Government or state funded entities
must have websites that are equally accessible to blind or visually
impaired visitors. For instance, websites must provided text equivalents
non-text elements such as images, animation, audio and video. We will
make every effort to comply with these new guidelines on the State
of Arkansas website. If you have trouble accessing or navigating state
pages, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Security is the most important portion of customer service for any
business or government entity conducting commerce on the Internet
today. We take this issue very seriously. The Information Network of
(INA) utilizes Secured Socket Layer (SSL) protocol for Internet
transaction security. This SSL protocol allows INA to deliver server
data encryption and message integrity. Every step of the process,
from the initial submission of data to the final settlement through
of credit cards, has been built with the most advanced yet user-friendly
security features available.
