DIR ASSISTS WITH WEB SITE ACCESSIBILITY

The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) announced a new program to assist state agencies, local government entities, and institutions of higher education in improving the accessibility of their public Web sites for people with disabilities.  

DIR contracted with a company to use Web accessibility scanning services. The service scans and analyzes key portions of agency public Web sites and provides precise information on accessibility errors found. 

To discuss scope and pricing, contact Wes Dillon at wes.dillon@deque.com.  More information about the new program is available at
