eGovernment is largely about public access to information. What does that say, then about making web sites as widely accessible as you possible can? I think there eGovernment Web sites have an obligation to be as accecssible as possible. In this category, I have to give the Salt Lake County Recorder's Office a grade of "F". Here's what I saw when I went to their Web site:
I sympathize with web site developers who want to offer some neat functionality that's browser specific, but I think its decidedly broken to offer public services only to people who use a particular kind of browser, computer, etc. This site simply can't be compliant with Section 508 or the American's with Disabilities Act. I've got a lot of respect for Gary Ott and I think he's clearly clueful about many of the public records issues that eGovernment is raising, but I'm disappointed in this.
