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.
