Relaunched Recovery.gov Fails Accessibility Standards

9/30/2009
Recovery.gov, a showcase government-transparency Web site that relaunched on Monday, fails to meet U.S. federal government Section 508 accessibility standards.

9/1/2009
The U.S. federal government's USAspending.gov Web site is a travesty, almost a parody of a government-transparency site. The site looks fine, but it significantly fails accessibility requirements.
