WASHINGTON – July 25, 2019 –User1st, the provider of the most advanced web and mobile accessibility solutions on the market for testing, remediation, monitoring and compliance, today issued the following statement from its co-founder and CEO, Amihai Miron:

“This week marks the 29th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and we celebrate it as a groundbreaking piece of legislation that is viewed around the world as the gold standard for how to safeguard the rights of people with disabilities. The ADA has truly changed the world as a driver of equality, access and inclusion for millions, and it has transformed our physical environment in many significant ways.

“However, much work remains as the digital divide for people with disabilities endures. That’s why it's critical today that our adherence to the ADA continues to extend to web accessibility and set a global example for digital inclusion. As the internet plays an increasingly important role in various aspects of daily life – in making a living, pursuing an education, seeking employment opportunities, shopping online, connecting with friends and family, and more – it is essential that the web – and everything it offers – be accessible to everyone.”
