Americans with Disabilities Act

July 26th marks the 21st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This month, Digitalliteracy.gov will launch new featured resources aimed at highlighting resources on disability-related programs and learning applications. While 68 percent of persons not reporting a disability use broadband at home, the adoption rate for persons with disabilities consistently lagged in a direct comparison (38%) . DigitalLitearcy.gov features resources such as screen reader tutorials, website design and usability tips, and information on disability disclosure in the workplace to bolster the development of digital skills through active use.
