  • LDAR 3 MINUTES -- The first idea I want to share is that the LAW around website accessibility is a CIVIL RIGHT. What do we mean when we say civil right in the context of web access? A right that an individual has to information… to services.. To participate…to community These are all very POSITIVE THINGS, and the start of any discussion of web accessiblity should start here. Do we want to live in a society where EVERYONE can access the web or not? Can we be SATISFIED with a system the keeps blind people from participating in on-line educational opportunities? That requires people to have mobility dexterity if they are to get a free on-line credit report. HARKIN – RIGHT TO CURRICULUM
