That has changed in recent years, as the issue of website accessibility – or whether a site can be used by people who are blind – has gotten more attention.
This eBook provides an overview of the ADA, describes some of the lawsuits and regulatory actions in this space, and then discusses what companies can do to reduce their risks.
