Accessible Technology (Information and Technical Assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA)

Description:

In a new feature on its ADA.gov website, the Department of Justice (DOJ) provides information and resources on accessible technology. Topics covered include enforcement, technical assistance and guidance, regulations, and technology initiatives. ADA.gov is the DOJ Civil Rights Division’s site for technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Enforcement

The Department's ADA enforcement efforts have helped to ensure that people with disabilities can access Web sites, electronic book readers, online courses, and point-of-sale devices.

Technical Assistance and Guidance

The Department has developed technical assistance and guidance to help covered entities understand their ADA obligations with regard to accessible technology.

Regulation Development

The ADA broadly protects the rights of individuals with disabilities in employment, access to State and local government services, places of public accommodation, transportation, and other important areas of American life. The ADA directs the Attorney General to promulgate regulations to carry out the provisions of Titles II and III.
