California Law on Web accessibility

The idea behind the development of the web is to provide a way that facilitates communication and information for users from different parts of the world. It should be accessible to everyone. It is an individual's civil right to access to the commercial activities, services, and entertainment on the web just like walking on the roads, visiting to a museum, or traveling in a bus.

Keeping in mind, the necessity of developing flexible web accessible websites, SynapseIndia takes the privilege of developing websites meant for individuals including people with disabilities and act as a rock solid information bank that provides useful information and communication in their lives. We firmly believe in providing an effective gateway to generate business and profit.

Federal Law

The US Congress amended its much hyped the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973 with Section 508 in 1998, which says that individuals with disabilities (physical as well as mental), who holds memberships of the public seeking information or services from a federal agency, enjoys equal access to and use of information and data that is usually provided to individuals without any disability. It does not include private players at that point of time.

However, nothing has been mentioned about the non-Federal agencies using the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In an extent to the original law of 1973, the US Department of Justice stated that the access to the government entities on the Internet along with providers whose services can be referred as "public accommodations" can be very much possible.

Highlights of the Prominent US laws for Disabled:

Section 504 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973

  • Disability rights are accepted as a form of civil rights and come under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

  • Institutions receiving federal funds or grants should provide equal access to their programs to disabled
  • Uses total institutional budget (not just the computing area's budget) in measuring the "reasonableness" of required accommodations for accessibility

The Americans with Disabilities Act ( ADA ) of 1990

  • More access to people with disabilities in the American society
  • Extends the functional area of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to all public and commercial providers, with few exceptions
  • Every institution receiving federal funds and grants must establish and plan greater accessibility compliance

In recent lawsuit, web accessibility for people with disabilities has emerged as a major issue in the United States . Under the federal laws, websites are required to follow all the necessary tools and techniques to facilitate disabled to seek adequate information or navigate a website like any other healthy individual.
