Professor Peter Blanck Discusses the ADA and Web Accessibility on Knowledge@Wharton
"... [T]he whole point of the Americans With Disabilities Act is that people with disabilities, regardless of their impairments, should have the opportunity to do everything that people without disabilities do. That our environment, that we build, that we create, should not be made inaccessible."
On July 3, 2019, BBI Chairman Peter Blanck was interviewed on the Knowledge@Wharton podcast. Joining Blanck was Lex Frieden, Professor of Biomedical Informatics and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Blanck and Frieden discussed companies being sued—such as Domino's Pizaa—for allegedly operating non-ADA compliant websites. They also addressed the future of accessibility, smart technology, universal design, and artificial intelligence.
