Disability.gov Web Site Launched
The US Department of Labor has redesigned and updated a federal website: Disability.gov: Connecting the Disability Community to Information & Opportunities. Disability.gov (formerly known as DisabilityInfo.gov) provides easy access to comprehensive disability-related information and resources.
The site sports easily adjustable text size and options to view Full Graphics or High Contrast and incorporates technologies such as RSS feeds, a blog, a news section, a newsletter and a chance to follow updates on Twitter. In keeping with its mission, the site adheres to Section 508 and WCAG1 AA.
Information may be viewed by topic: Benefits, Civil Rights, Community Life, Education, Emergency Preparedness, Employment, Health, Housing, Technology and Transportation; and by state. Both a Search and Advanced Search option are available as is a directed “I want to…” section to assist with site navigation. A Site Map is also included.
