Articulating a right to the Web for persons with cognitive disabilities
G. Anthony Giannoumis
Given major developments in the field of technology, law, policy and disability rights, this book review examines the recent publication by Cambridge University Press of eQuality: The Struggle for Web Accessibility by Persons with Cognitive Disabilities, by Peter Blanck. This review analyses the contribution of eQuality as a basis for future research in universal access law, policy and technology development. The analysis demonstrates that while Blank’s proposed legal and technical solutions have yet to emerge substantively, eQuality will nonetheless become an anchor for future research at the intersection of technological innovation, human rights, intellectual property and anti-discrimination regulation. This review argues that eQuality provides a substantial academic basis and acts as a seminal starting point for articulating a right to the Web for individuals with cognitive disabilities.
