Disabilities Act Doesn't Cover The Web

from the phew dept

Following up on an article we had last week concerning the case of whether or not the web counted as a “place” for the purposes of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a judge has now ruled that the ADA does not apply to the web and website operators don’t have to adjust their pages to make sure they’re accessible to those with disabilities. As both articles we posted on this topic said, requiring changes would likely create a huge mess for all different types of sites as they scrambled to redo their pages.
