Title:  Websites and the ADA:  Accessibility in the Digital Age

Speakers:  Barry Taylor and Rachel Weisberg, Equip for Equality, Chicago, IL (More information about the presenters can be found on the website)

Session Description:

When the ADA was enacted in 1990, the internet had not yet become such an important part of people’s lives, including the lives of people with disabilities.
 Now that the internet has become such an integral tool for business, employers and government entities, courts have been grappling with how the ADA applies
to websites and web based information.  Also, the Department of Justice has announced it will be revising its regulations to address website accessibility.
  This webinar will review the legal theories on applying the ADA to the internet and discuss the case law analyzing this issue.  Don’t miss this session
as accessibility moves beyond ramps and onto the world wide web.


This session will be delivered via the Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing System.  The session will be closed captioned.  Audio will be delivered via
the webinar platform but a non-toll free number for telephone audio will also be provided.  Information regarding the accessibility of the platform for
assistive technologies can be found at
