Dear colleagues interested in web accessibility:

On July 30 CVS issued a press release announcing that it will make  
its web site accessible by the end of this year.  The announcement is  
the result of a settlement agreement that CVS reached with ACB, AFB  
and CCB that requires compliance with WCAG standards.  Because the  
negotiations were well underway and accessibility improvements had  
begun when WCAG 2.0 became final, CVS has the option of using WCAG  
1.0 or WCAG 2.0.

The full release is posted at:  http://lflegal.com/2009/07/cvs-press/

The full settlement agreement, which also requires tactile keypads in  
CVS stores so that blind people can independently enter their PIN and  
other confidential information, is posted at:  http://lflegal.com/ 
2009/07/cvs-agreement/

A short summary of the twelve web accessibility settlement agreements  
that have been reached using Structured Negotiations instead of  
litigation can be found at:  http://lflegal.com/category/settlements/

Thanks, Lainey
