Adding the web to ADA

Cyndi Rowland has a good summary of the issues with the ADA and web accessibility. As she explains very effectively, the current ADA doesn’t include the web as a place of public accommodation (c.f. Access Now v. Southwest). That’s a huge problem; while Section 508 and state laws like the IITAA provide guidance in some contexts, essentially there’s a huge blind spot in the law. But two revision processes now underway–one legislative, one regulatory–could change that. Time to write some letters.
