Nick Bristow, 18F Innovation Specialist, GSA

Online security and online access for people with disabilities have collided. Many of the most common Web practices for ensuring a user is actually human can be very difficult to use if you've got a disability. For example, Techniques like CAPTCHA, which requires users to type in a distorted word or symbol, can be impossible for the blind. To remedy that, the General Services Administration's 18F tech team recently held an "Accessibility Hackathon." They want to find a way to keep dot-gov sites secure and make them more accessible. Nick Bristow is an 18F innovation specialist working on this problem. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain some of the team's ideas.

Jason Miller, Executive Editor, Federal News Radio

The General Services Administration's 18F has more business than it can handle. The special software development team has agreements with about 17 agencies. That's bringing in a constant stream of work. That demand for development is driving a new blanket purchase agreement (BPA) for agile development services. It needs to offer alternative sources for agencies needing fast turnaround applications. Greg Godbout is the executive director of 18F. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, he tells executive editor Jason Miller about plans to get the BPA up and running in the coming year.
