Overview

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is intended to “prohibit[] discrimination and guarantee[] that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services.”

The ability to participate in the mainstream of American life includes access to our digital world but how does the ADA's intent translate to "access" to digital products? Please join Ronald J. Hedges of Dentons US LLP and Stacey L. Turmel of The Internet is for Everyone, LLC for a discussion of the following key issues:

  • What digital products, if any, might be subject to the ADA? (10 minutes)
  • What standards might govern the accessibility of digital products and how might a digital product conform to the ADA? (20 minutes)
  • What happens if someone with a disability cannot use a particular digital product - can the developer or manufacturer of the digital product be liable? (15 minutes)
  • Is this the next wave of accessibility lawsuits? (15 minutes)
