Electronic Book Readers and the Americans with Disability Act

The U.S. Department of Justice reached a settlement with three universities, including Reed College, concerning the use of ebook readers in the classroom.

“Under the agreements reached today, the universities generally will not purchase, recommend or promote use of the Kindle DX, or any other dedicated electronic book reader, unless the devices are fully accessible to students who are blind and have low vision.”
