The National Council on Disability (NCD) has issued a report on measures to ensure access to information and communication technologies for people with disabilities. The document provides recommendations to the President, Congress, and federal agencies, as well as to the technology industry, the private sector, and state and local governments. NCD provided a briefing on the report at the Capitol on October 7 with representatives from industry, disability groups, and federal agencies, including the Access Board.
Please join the U.S. Access Board members and staff for a public briefing on three recent final rules
Rules to finalize include:
Updated ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Buses and Vans (published December 14)
Accessibility Standards for Medical Diagnostic Equipment (to be published January 9)
Information and Communication Technology Standards and Guidelines (to be published soon)
Because the ADA does not specify how kiosks should accommodate the visually impaired, the industry is challenged in how to comply with the law’s mandate. Lawsuits on behalf of visually impaired individuals could clarify what measures kiosk manufacturers should take to improve access for the visually impaired.
