Tori Ekstrand, the director of communications for the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy, wrote an article about web accessibility that was published in The Atlantic last week.
The article then quickly was picked up by PBS Media Shift’s Daily Best Reads blog (“The best stories across the web on media and technology”) and NPR’s All Things Considered.
Tori’s “Should Netflix be Accessible to the Deaf?” argues that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) should apply to the Internet, including to sites like Netflix. Tori is an assistant professor in the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Her article was the result of her ongoing research about how the ADA does and should apply to the Internet. Great work, Tori!
