Web Site Accessibility


An article on Slashdot talks about a lawsuit against Southwest Airlines on the accessibility of their web site for blind users.  I've thought for some time that we need greater emphasis on this issue for utah.gov.    We recently held a set of classes for state web site developers on ADA and Section 508 issues.  That's probably not enough.  I think we need a usability lab and some requirements that all state web sites meet certain minimum standards.  As more and more services are online, we need to ensure that they are as widely available as possible.
