"Monday marks the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA), a code of law that has influenced society and
tech companies in interesting ways already, and is expanding to
influence them even more.
One recent example: feds encouraged schools around the country, notably
Princeton and Arizona State University, to drop the idea of requiring
students to use e-readers, specifically the Amazon Kindle DX, until the
devices were made "accessible."
Accessible and acceptable e-readers would need features that work for
students who are deaf, blind or have limited manual dexterity."
It goes on to talk about other issues and is not gaming focused but
something that may be of interest to this group regardless, especially
as we watch court cases like the one about Sony and Playstation Home go
through. The Monday referenced in the first line is not today as I am
late in sending this out. :)
