Web Accessibility Suits and Settlements in 2015

It has been a year since I wrote a similar article Web Accessibility Sues and Settlements in 2014 and it is the end of 2015, time to help my readers look at some suits and settlements in 2015. Before I take you to the recent suits, let me walk you through some of the accessibility initiatives few countries or states have taken this year.

It’s exactly 7 years since WCAG 2.0External Website is recognized as W3C Recommendation 11 December 2008. So I thought of publishing this article today.

Below are few legal suits and settlements in 2015

Note that all the below links target to external websites.

Please notify me in the comments if you have any more items I can add to the list. I will be more than happy to do so.

    Rakesh, I clicked on a number of these links, but did not find ANY in regards to cognitive or intellectual disabilities, or related sensory processing disorders (SPD). My SPD has become so problematic of late that I am not able to watch television broadcasts because of so many loud chaotic commercials. This would seem to be an accessibility issue meeting ADA accommodations requirements. But I’ve not been able to get an attorney to take it up. SPD and loud commercials effect a large percentage of persons with autism, ADHD, hydrocephalus, post stroke & TBI, Alzheimers, and even drug & alcohol addiction. The associated SPD or “sensory” disorder that occurs so widely in the above disorders, and affects the above disabled persons’ use of classrooms, public buildings like restaurants, and sports venues, theme parks and the like.

    Television broadcasting is governed under FCC rules so you may wish to contact their Disability Rights Office at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/dro
