Does anyone really think that it is a lack of a standard that is at the root of the barriers in the virtual landscape?

One key takeaway from this story: the last sentence says it all.

Chris Danielsen, a spokesman for advocacy organization National Federation
of the Blind, says the organization is supporting proposed legislation
called the Accessible Instructional Materials in Higher Education Act of
2017 that would provide guidance to institutions on accessible technology.

"Sadly, the failure of colleges and universities to provide accessible
technology and course content to blind students is all too common," he
writes in an email to USA TODAY College. "This is usually due to a lack of
knowledge by university faculty and administrators on how to procure
accessible technology and/or create accessible content."
