>From the leadership list:
The website the feds use for public comment is not screen reader
compatible and you may also be "timed-out" if you take more than 20
minutes to complete
the form. I called the CMS Director's office and was forwarded to
the website's helpdesk. The staffer agreed to provide this
and agreed to look into the screen reader access issue. So if you
use a screen reader or are concerned that you will be timed out,
there is an alternative
way for you to submit comments.
Send your comments by email to:
mailto:regulations.gov_helpdesk at email@example.com
Provide your first name, last name, city country, state, zip code,
category (either individual or consumer organization), and the text
of your comments.
The help desk staff person will fill in the form online and send you
an email with the tracking number for your comments and an update on
the access issue.
I hope folks who use screen readers will submit comments this way to
demonstrate the need for access to the website.
