The purpose of this project is to assess a number of federal and federally sponsored contractors' websites to determine if the sites met federal regulations governing disabled website accessibility. Research was performed that dealt with the federal regulations involved with website accessibility using programs designed for website analysis. The primary departments that were analyzed belonged in each of the three branches of government, in addition to federally sponsored contractors. As a result of interviews and assessments, a report has been constructed that detailed what needs to be done in addition to a sample website which is accessible under the laws and guidelines set forth by the U.S. government.
