Abstract:

This comment analyzes the current debate over Internet accessibility for the blind. The author proposes an amendment to the ADA which would require that all Web sites make reasonable accommodations so they are accessible to the visually impaired. The amendment would comply with the purpose of the ADA, and promote the public policy of equal access to all. Finally, the author concludes that, given the Internetís prevalence in todayís society, an amendment to the ADA is essential to promote equality and bring the ADA into the Internet age.
