See Chapter 13 for further information). By June 1996 I had written the City of San José Web Page Disability Access Design Standard. This standard was developed in response to the monitoring of ADA Internet complaints and the need to incorporate City ADA implementation policies. Seven minimum requirements were identified for web accessibility and it was understood that these standards would evolve as new technologies and information systems emerged to solve the problem: 1. Provide an Access Instruction page for visitors (explaining the accessibility features of the web site and providing an e-mail hyperlink for visitors to communicate problems with web page accessibility) 2.

Disability groups, standards organizations, government regulators, attorneys, vendors of web development tools, developers of browsers and other user agents, assistive technology developers, and content providers all have roles to play in designing for accessibility. When one of these groups acts unilaterally, or fails to fulfill its responsibilities, it lowers the prospects for a Web that is universally accessible.

At that time, my office received an ADA complaint against the City of San José for operating an inaccessible web site.

This was a case where the posting of inaccessible City Council documents violated the “effective communication” requirement of the ADA.
