Never before have the civil rights of people with disabilities aligned so well with developments in information and communication technology. The center of the technology revolution is the Internet, which fosters unprecedented opportunities for engagement in democratic society. The Americans with Disabilities Act likewise is helping to ensure equal participation in society by people with disabilities. Globally, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities further affirms that persons with disabilities are entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of fundamental personal freedoms. This book is about the lived struggle for disability rights, with a focus on Web equality for people with cognitive disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, autism, and print-related disabilities. The principles derived from the right to the Web - freedom of speech and individual dignity - are bound to lead toward full and meaningful involvement in society for persons with cognitive and other disabilities.

'We must do our best to invite people with cognitive disabilities to become an integral part of our digital world. It's their right. It's society's gain. It's the right thing to do. So, hooray for eQuality! And hooray for Peter Blanck's high achievement in the publication of this pathbreaking book.' David Braddock, Professor and Director of the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities, University of Colorado
'The twenty-fifth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act is a fitting time for Professor Blanck to break wide open new territory in the civil rights struggle of persons with cognitive disabilities. eQuality is a must-read that will prove essential to scholars and practitioners concerned about Web-content equality for all people.' Michael Waterstone, Associate Dean and Professor of Law, Loyola Law School
'[A] groundbreaking achievement! In eQuality, Peter Blanck sets the stage for future advocacy of equal access to the information society.' Jutta Treviranus, Professor of Design and Director of the Inclusive Design Research Centre, OCAD University, Ontario
'Jefferson wrote that freedom has to be secured from one generation to the next. The Web allows this and future generations of persons with disabilities opportunities to open up worlds that were previously locked away. eQuality unlocks this potential and secures freedom into the twenty-first century - a virtual civic republic.' Gerard Quinn, Professor of Law and Director of the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, National University of Ireland, Galway
