 Summary: "This paper identifies some of the emerging digital economy barriers, current efforts to address these barriers and expresses the authorís vision of the long-term policy research agenda.  Because the benefits for overcoming these barriers extend beyond the community of people with disabilities, there are practical and significant business reasons for addressing this issue.  Rather than creating a growing digital divide, emerging technology can enable full participation in the digital economy for everyone, regardless of age, disability or the limitations of the technology available"  From the Introduction to the paper. It is heavily annotated with useful references legal and otherwise. - Published May, 1999
