Lawsuits over making websites more accessible for disabled

disabled websiteA number of websites are facing lawsuits that claim the sites aren’t easily accessible for disabled users. For example, Vox and The Hollywood Reporter say that Beyonce was sued in January over her website being inaccessible because it has a “purely visual interface.” As you may know, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires websites to be more accessible and consider those which aren’t in violation of the civil rights of disabled users because they limit communication and participation in society. The National Associations of the Deaf has also sued Netflix, by not providing equal access to its “watch instantly” streaming video. You might think the problem would be getting better with awareness, but Vox reports it’s only getting worse.
