Obama to sign bill to bring Web, devices to disabled
President Obama on Friday will sign into law a disabilities bill that will make the Internet, smartphones and Internet video more accessible to people with disabilities.
Obama is scheduled to sign the the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act, a bill introduced last year by Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) that would update the American Disabilities Act to force captioning on Internet video, voice prompts for smartphones and menus on television for the blind.
Please check out my recent story on the legislation.
