What is the difference between Section 508 and ADA Compliance?

Section 508 focuses on keeping federal agencies and bodies with federal funding in accessibility compliance.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is focused on accessibility everywhere. This means the entire private sector is affected too.
