Hi Sailesh,

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate this but primarily the Disabilities Discrimination Act over here (in the UK) has a section that refers to Publishing and that now is deemed to be covering the Internet as well as conventional Publishing. I understood that there was a similar approach in the US with relating Sections of the ADA that concern the publishing of material or broadcast of same etc.

This was more my line of enquiry.

Kindest regards

Stephen Morgan

  The ADA predates the Internet and the Web and there are no explicit references  in it to the Web or online actibities.

    I have been asked to provide a colleague with some information about the specific areas of the ADA that relate to online Activities. I know where to find the relevant info with regards to the DDA over here in the UK but I am not as familiar with the ADA.

    Anyone got any pointers?

    Kindest regards
