ADA Guidelines

What is ADA Compliance?

The Department of Justice (DOJ) published the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design in September 2010. These standards state that all electronic and information technology must be accessible to people with disabilities.

The ADA differs from Section 508 regulations, which are an amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and apply to all information technology, including computer hardware, software and documentation.

In June, a Massachusetts judge ruled that a lawsuit can go forward against Netflix to provide captions for its Watch Instantly streaming content. Netflix hoped to get the suit, brought by the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) and others, thrown out of court. But Federal District Court Judge Michael Ponsor disagreed.
