b.  Reasonable accommodation may include, but shall not be limited to: 

   1) Making facilities readily accessible to and usable by handicapped

      modification of examinations, the provision of readers and interpreters, 
      and other similar actions.

c.  In determining pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section whether an
   accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the operation of the agency
   in question, factors to be considered include:

   1) The overall size of the agency's program with respect to the number of
      employees, number and type of facilities, and size of budget;

      the agency's work force; and 3) the nature and cost of the 
      accommodation."
