US Department of Justice Seeks to Extend ADA to More Technologies

As part of the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Department of Justice has released 4 Advance Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRMs) asking for public comment on whether and how to extend the ADA to cover:

  • Web Information and Services
  • Movie Captioning and Description
  • Next Generation 9-1-1
  • Equipment and Furniture

All 4 are intended to apply to both public and private environments.  The ANPRMs will collect comments from the public, and will be followed by more steps leading to new regulations.
