Illegal Websites and
Access Rights – Many countries have differing
laws on website content and it is impossible to enforce these laws
on a global level.
The following section provides some examples of
how website laws vary by jurisdiction.
Varying vastly between jurisdictions, many
national and local laws have been enacted to restrict website
content. The following are just a few examples:
France – The French require that all websites
be accessible in French.
Canada – All Canadian websites must be
bi-lingual; available in both French and English.
USA – The Americans with Disabilities Act may
soon be expanded in scope to require that all USA websites meet
minimum accessibility standards for the visually and hearing
The following section details the USA website
accessibility guidelines for the blind.
Website Accessibility in the U.S.A.
Groups of disability rights advocates are
fighting to expand the scope of the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA) to cover the rights of the visually and hearing impaired to
have equal access to websites.

on the web might be exposed to legal action if their system is not
accessible to the blind or deaf.
