What's Happening Now

I think that regardless of the accessibility of a web site, there needs to be tools in place to allow a disabled user to access the information, either by clicking a link that takes him or her to a web site that will be accessible to either a screen reader, voice activation, or other modes of accessibility.

It is unfair for a site to not utilize accessible formats to assist deaf, blind, or other disabled persons to gain access to the same information as everyone else.

Thank you

Welcome to Regulation Room and thank you for your comment, wi9hf. DOT is proposing that covered websites be required to comply with WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards. The standards are intended to create websites that will work better with tools that persons with disabilities utilize such as screen readers. Do you think that it would also be better to require airlines to also provide an alternative text only site?
