software engineeringCarahsoft Technology Corp. has added the cloud-based accessibility software offerings of User1st to the company’s General Services Administration schedule in an effort to help agencies and businesses gain access to websites.

The User1st software features a code-fixer designed to generate web accessibility skins in order to correct web pages without changing the content.
