We appreciate the U.S. House passing any legislation in support of our veterans and calling attention to the important need for website accessibility. We agree that eliminating digital barriers will help veterans get the medical and disability care as well as access to vocational and educational services they need.
However, our veterans with disabilities – as well as senior citizens and persons with varied and changing abilities – need web accessibility now. The means to understand the scope of the problem already exists. We can start making meaningful progress today toward fixing the most critical digital services for veterans, and all citizens, immediately without a lengthy and costly study. All government services and information should be accessible to all citizens.
