Using technology to provide equal access to the courts

Via Patricia, an article about a lab trial (being held at my alma mater) designed to provide equal courtroom access to persons with disabilities:

“The aging baby boomers will simply intensify the already critical need to assist peoples with special needs when they must go to court or a legal hearing,”? Lederer said. “Assistive technology can be miraculous. The goal of our experimental trial is to see what works and where improvements are needed.”?

    Hopefully a lot of things will become more accessible as the baby boomers age…maybe the disability rights movement has some hope of picking up steam in the next decade or so.
