Hi all!

Please forgive cross-posts, but Lainey Feingold’s legal updates are always very valuable. If you are interested in the legal aspects of digital equality, I highly recommend following Lainey by joining her list.

Subject: Digital accessibility in the legal space: potholes or cookies?

I'm writing to share three recent article I've posted on my website. Two are about my sessions at the 2018 CSUN Assistive Technology Conference in San Diego last month. The third is a reminder to build accessibility into technology vendor contracts and procurement practices.

The first two articles have links to the powerpoint slides and summaries of the talks in San Diego. The third was first published in Business Law Today, a publication of the American Bar Association. As always, feedback welcomed.

Thank you to Eve Hill, my co-author of the vendor contract article. Thank you to Sue Boyd, the Microsoft lawyer who was my co-presenter for the Bake Accessibility session. We had a lot of fun and even served cookies to drive home our theme. (The ingredient list includes transparency, inclusive hiring, and accountability. Find out why in the article!)

Lastly, thank you to 96 year old federal judge Jack Weinstein who gave the legal update wrap-up its title. Judge Weinstein recently refused to throw a web access case out of court. He wrote that too narrow an interpretation of the Americans with Disabilities Act would leave "potholes of discrimination in what would otherwise be a smooth road to integration."

I wish each of you a smooth road, and the sweetness of cookies,
