Posted on March 7, 2017

This is a post about how the law is helping make websites, mobile applications, and other technology more accessible to disabled people. Here are some examples. A recent lawsuit helped make sure blind people can vote without help. A Texas pharmacy worked with blind customers to develop a plan for talking labels. A Boston hospital worked with blind patients to make sure blind people could use its website and print information. Sometimes a lawsuit is not necessary. People use a method called Structured Negotiation to work together.
