Should all websites be accessible?

Episode Summary

The Americans with Disabilities Act, known as the ADA, was signed into law in 1990 by George HW Bush, protecting the rights of the disabled and the impaired. But since then, businesses have been hit by a record-wave of lawsuits that allege websites are not ADA compliant. However, the cost of making websites accessible can be steep, ranging anywhere from several thousand dollars to a million. The costs and effort involved have left the development community, businesses, and the agencies that support them divided on the issue. In today's episode, front-end developer Paul Miller discusses the moral grey areas of ADA website compliancy.
