Abstract: DOJ's Civil Rights Division, Disability Rights Section, is requesting PRA approval of a new information collection to assess potential benefits of accessible Web content to individuals who are blind and to inform future rulemaking under the Americans with Disabilities Act. DOJ proposes to have respondents who are blind interact with Web content that has high accessibility and low accessibility to assess any time savings that people who are blind experience when interacting with accessible Web content. The collection will also request additional information regarding challenges, if any, experienced by respondents while interacting with inaccessible Web content.

5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 30 respondents will participate at three hours per respondent. All of the respondents will fully complete the collection.

6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 90 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take an average of three hours to complete the process. The burden hours for collecting respondent data sum to 90 hours (30 respondents × 3 hours = 90 hours).
