"Providing a website that is accessible to people with disabilities is not only a good policy for e-government, it is increasingly likely to be required, depending on the source of the funding for your e-government project... The Southern California Compass website provides the 17 million residents of Southern California with a variety of tools to engage in the growth visioning effort — information about the effort, the ability to register for workshops online, a multimedia gallery explaining how growth visioning works, online surveys and research, and a volunteer recruitment center. Thanks to the forward-thinking nature of the project sponsors, the web team was empowered to make the website a model of e-government accessibility."
