The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) expects workplaces and public areas to be accessible for people with disabilities. Since 1990, businesses and communities strive to meet these requirements. For example, public areas must take steps to remove barriers and add domed-tile curb ramps to improve accessibility and safety for people with impairments.
Creating a world that is accessible to everyone, with or without disabilities, takes innovation and drive. Conferences highlight emerging technologies in order to enhance the lives of people living with impairments. These conferences are the perfect platform for cities and businesses to learn how to become more accessible to everyone.
Attend one of the conferences below to find out what’s on the horizon for assistive digital technologies, education, and city accessibility.
When the United States passed the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), it became illegal for airlines to discriminate against passengers who had an impairment. The law applies to any airline that provides air transportation to, from, or within the United States. Not only does this law cut down on discrimination, but it also requires airlines to provide assistance for passengers, such as a wheelchair, guided assistance for all areas of boarding, or seating accommodation.
