- Making Internet shopping accessible to blind and visually impaired users: Royal National Institute for the Blind study (only partial findings available online; you have to pay £5 for the whole report; 2001.01.11)
Advocates of People With Disabilities Take Online Stores to
Task: “Borders.com could more easily address access
issues in coming redesigns. ‘The A.D.A. has not been on our
radar until very recently. But it’s in the mix
now’ ” (2001.01.11)
- Smart Biz: Enabling the
Disabled: “ ‘Accessibility is a competitive
advantage,’ says Election.com CEO Joe Mohen.
‘It’s an economic opportunity to broaden our mission
and differentiate ourselves, and it’s solid, logical business
that improves the value of our service. It’s a good thing to
do from a Wall Street perspective’ ” (2001.01.11)
