And symphonies discriminate against the deaf.
I mocked that view in criticizing last year’s lawsuit against Chipotle: Chipotle Mexican Grill versus egalitarianism.
Turns out, though, that it’s cutting-edge civil rights law based on the Americans with Disabilities Act: “Justice Department Settles with Sacramento, Calif., Public Library Authority Over Inaccessible ‘E-Reader’ Devices”.
The library had acquired several Barnes & Noble NOOK e-readers that came without special features that enable the visually-impaired to convert text-to-speech.
Good to know those devices are now illegal for public libraries. And that tens of thousands of dollars have been spent to protect us. Or something like that.
