Interview on TEACH Act Progress

min read

(Sept. 21, 2015) WCET's Russ Poulin and I recently discussed the progress that the National Federation of the Blind, the Association of American Publishers, and higher education groups have made on a shared alternative to the Technology, Equalilty, and Accessibility in College and Higher Education (TEACH) Act, which was introduced in Congress during the fall of 2013. The goal of the compromise bill currently being written is to foster the development of voluntary accessibility guidelines for electronic instructional materials and related technologies. Please see our dialogue for background on the process, and join Jon Fansmith from the American Council on Education and me for tomorrow's EDUCAUSE Live! webinar (Sept. 22, 2015), in which we will discuss this issue in greater detail.
