U.S. Web Accessibility Law in Depth

  • Cynthia D. Waddell

Abstract

Through the American disability rights tradition, access to electronic and information technology has emerged as a civil right.

Today, there are significant legal incentives for ensuring that Internet and intranet websites designed for U.S. entities meet accessible web requirements.
